Social Responsibility

Commitment to Sustainability

Old National recognizes our responsibility to effectively manage our social, cultural and economic resources in partnership with our associates, clients, vendors and communities. We seek to accomplish this by continually examining our organizational practices and our role in cultivating strong and sustainable communities, now and for future generations.

“Being green is certainly important, but sustainability is about something even greater,” says Janet Baas, Old National's Director of Sustainability. “Our focus and intent is to help strengthen our organization and other organizations through partnerships, sponsorships, financial literacy and associate volunteerism.”

Sustainability initiatives at Old National can be grouped into three main categories:

  • Social sustainability. Current initiatives include associate mentoring, donations of physical assets and financial education and literacy efforts.
  • Cultural sustainability. This includes empowering associate volunteerism, strong employee development initiatives and our diversity and inclusion efforts.
  • Economic sustainability. This encompasses our commitment to corporate governance and responsible utilization of resources, including paper and utility conservation, and supply and process efficiencies.

Internal sustainability goals for 2014 include an enterprise-wide imaging solution, an expansion of recycling efforts, continued reduction of utilities usage, and ongoing associate education and awareness. A major external focus is on more closely aligning the goals of the Foundation with Old National’s sustainability mission

Reducing our impact on the environment.

Old National strives to continuously improve our environmental performance and initiate additional projects and activities to reduce our impacts on the environment. 

We have formed an Environmental Task Force or "Green Team,” with associate representatives from across our regions and business lines. This team evaluates our current environmental-friendly practices and identifies other initiatives and strategies to be incorporated. They also developed the following Old National Environmental Policy Statement.

We are committed to:

  • Actively promote recycling among our associates and clients;
  • Educate our associates about our environmental practices and empower them to contribute and participate;
  • Comply with all applicable environmental regulations;
  • Communicate our environmental commitment and efforts to our clients, associates and our community;
  • Partner with nonprofit organizations and businesses in our communities to help provide and promote environmental programs and awareness;
  • Continually improve by striving to measure our environmental impacts and setting goals to reduce these impacts each year.

Janet Heldt Baas, Diversity and Work Life Director, who heads the task force says, “We're always striving to learn more about green practices throughout our footprint, whether by our own associates or at other local and regional companies, to identify initiatives we can implement throughout our company. These can range from promoting e-statements and turning off lights to installing energy efficient heating and cooling systems."
