For the third straight year, Bank Technology News named Citi one of America's greenest banks. In its April issue, the publication praises four organizations that have held on to environmental goals even in times of economic stress.
Citi was recognized in particular for multiple aspects of its Operations & Technology Sustainability program, including its creative data center management strategy, virtualization and data storage management, and the environmental software management system deployed by Citi Realty Services to monitor carbon footprint, energy consumption and waste management across all of Citi's 12,000+ properties.
