It can be much less expensive being green


Eco Friendly Money

If you're an organization that is going green or focused entirely on sustainability -- for example, an eco-chic retailer in need of a line of credit or a real estate developer seeking a construction loan for a LEED registered project -- we would be happy to introduce you to a like-minded potential banking partner offering preferred rates for Momentum Bay's clients & referrals.


Since 2007, we have been fortunate to work with Texas' first bank focused on sustainability, green buildings & green businesses. Momentum Bay's team has provided comprehensive green management consulting services, including:

  • executive coaching
  • staff & customer training (our firm's ECO [BOOT CAMP] for finance professionals)
  • marketing (i.e., corporate identity design & development, website design & development, co-marketing events with other Momentum Bay clients, & special projects)
  • green building consulting on their new headquarters
  • discounted green power procurement for the new headquarters & branches
  • & much more.

  • The most rewarding part of our relationship has been watching conventional bankers & executive leadership go farther & faster than we had ever imagined -- biking to work, buying bamboo dress socks, striving for & achieving LEED Gold rather than just Certified or Silver (since Gold became the standard in 2006 & 2007), buying 100% green power for 3 years (rather than the minimum 35% for 2 years), saving over a million dollars in the process, & growing every quarter while other banks stumble. These financial professionals understand firsthand that it may not be easy being green, but it can be extremely rewarding economically & personally.
