Go Green

Deeply rooted in our mission, vision and values, 1st Capital Bank has established a foundation for making decisions that reflect "green” practices. We strive daily to be a socially and environmentally responsible business.... from our own behind-the-scenes recycling efforts to client-facing "paperless banking" through the use of technology.

How Can I Help?

1st Capital Bank is committed to preserving the beauty of Monterey County and our planet.

We have compiled a list of helpful resources — we hope you’ll read, contemplate and take action!

Our individual steps are small, but purposeful. “Green” is achieved through thoughtful actions of everyone in our company. We hope you share our concerns and join us in making our planet Green.

According to Energy Star, if every American home replaced just one light bulb with a low energy light bulb (also known as a compact fluorescent light bulb, or "CFL") we would save enough energy to light more than 2.5 million homes for a year and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of nearly 800,000 cars.
