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.”
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
