Credit Human is committed to being good stewards of the resources members entrust them with, and that commitment to stewardship extends to Credit Human's community and the environment. The commitment is backed by Credit Human policies, including the Environmental Stewardship Policy adopted in September 2021. That policy is specific to the Credit Human headquarters in San Antonio and is currently being extended to all Credit Human facilities to address buildings, transportation, and solid waste reduction.
When Credit Human outgrew its six-story San Antonio headquarters building that had been in operation for over 40 years, a new 12 story building was designed and constructed to support the expansion of Credit Human’s Financial Health Centers to numerous states and the increase in employees at the headquarters.
CEO Steve Hennigan requested that architects and engineers push themselves beyond their current limits of how buildings are typically designed and built—to explore what is theoretically possible.
During the tour, attendees will learn more about the Credit Human Environmental Stewardship Policy, the 1703 Broadway location building’s performance metrics, and its performance compared to performance goals.
