About National Bank's eco-friendly practices
By using a modular space planning approach and adopting sustainable environmental practices, National Bank is committed to being an ecoresponsible leader in Quebec. A growing number of service points have been remodelled to reflect the changing needs of our clients. Furniture, glass doors and ABM front panels are a few examples of architectural components made from sustainable materials that can be reused from one branch to another. These components allow us to reduce construction waste and promote the local economy, while being modular and multipurpose. In addition, millions of KWh have been saved as a result of an innovative energy integration system in branches that centralizes energy management for more than 200 service points by using a web interface.
