MSU Federal Credit Union's East Lansing, Mich. headquarters has been recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council for achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification as a gold building.
LEED recognizes construction that embodies sustainable environmental design. Evaluation includes site development, water conservation, efficiency in heating and cooling, low VOC material selection, recycled and recyclable materials, healthy lifestyle and indoor air quality.
MSU Federal Credit Union is celebrating its achievement with a "So Green We're Gold" campaign. Members can earn higher dividends with Gold certificates and benefit with a lower loan rate given to members selecting fuel-efficient vehicles.
According to MSU FCU President/CEO Pat McPharlin, the designation is an important milestone as it further reinforces the credit union's eco-friendly policies and commitment to the communities it serves.
