Citi Keeps It Green

Citi is launching an eco-promotion by Citi Cards and Citibank to give away $30,000 in cash prizes to encourage customers to go paperless and will donate 10,000 trees to the Arbor Day Foundation’s Trees for America program. This latest earth-friendly initiative is part of Citi’s on-going worldwide effort to deliver tangible benefits to customers who want to reduce their paper waste. To date, Citi Cards businesses in 32 countries have planted over 2.3 million trees and saved over 40,000 trees by suppressing over 168 million paper statements and implementing recycling programs. Citi Cards’ efforts are part of Citi’s $50 billion, 10-year commitment started in 2007 to address global climate change through investments, financings and related activities to support the commercialization and growth of alternative energy and clean technology. For its green efforts, Citi was honored with America’s Greenest Bank Award from Bank Technology News. Additionally, Citi Cards received the 2009 Promise to the Earth Award by the Arbor Day Foundation. To enter the contest, visit, or
