Silver AHA Winner in Green Strategy

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, a not-for-profit financial services organization with $6 billion in 2008 revenue, greatly reduced emissions and realized significant savings when it made changes to increase the energy efficiency of its 17-story corporate center in downtown Minneapolis. And while Thrivent was making those changes, grassroots interest among its employees led to the formation of committees that are taking on green projects.

In 2003, after the Environmental Protection Agency's energy efficiency rating on the Minneapolis building came in at just 44%, lower than average for office buildings, Thrivent hired a consulting firm to identify ways to cut the building's energy use and costs.
