Sustainability

Access Credit Union is investing in the future of our planet.

Access Credit Union exists to inspire our members and communities with trusted financial solutions, now and for the future. 

When planning for the future—financially or otherwise—it’s more important than ever to consider the impacts we have on our environment and the role each of us can play in shaping the future of our planet.



Our Green Check initiative represents our continual commitment to become a more environmentally conscious credit union.

Access Credit Union embraces change and initiates opportunity. As a member-based organization, we are in a unique position to be a positive influence toward a greener tomorrow. With the courage to innovate and with the cooperation of our member community, we are already making a difference.

Our current efforts

  • Offer a Green paperless account with free online and self-serve transactions

  • Accommodate and embrace a tele-commute workplace

  • Subsidize employee transit passes

  • Participate in the annual Commuter Challenge

  • Host Annual Shred Days in our communities (when safe to do so)

  • Upgraded our mobile experience to ensure members can easily complete their banking online

  • Introduced DocuSign electronic paperwork to cut down on physical paper

  • Implemented secure email to coordinate paperwork with members to reduce branch visits and physical paper exchange

  • Reduced printed marketing material

  • Support environmental causes, such as the Green Action Centre

  • Donate funds to tree-planting initiatives and organizations focused on protecting and rebuilding natural habitats



How you can help

Access Credit Union is made up of a membership of individuals who share similar values. Together, we are a community who cares and there is power in our numbers. By making some simple changes as individuals, we can make a big difference.

Switch to estatements


If each of our 89,000+ members switched to eStatements each month, we could reduce our annual carbon footprint by:

  • 6,828 KILOGRAMS of paper

  • 82.7 TONNES in carbon emissions

  • 604,152 LITRES of water

  • 3,996 KILOGRAMS of solid waste
Fortunately, more than 28,562 of our members have already suppressed their statements, which means they either use eStatements or have reduced to quarterly or annual paper statements.
