Credit Human, Federal Credit Union

Credit Human was founded in 1935. Its name reflects our belief in others, giving credit to the dreams of members, and being more human by treating each other with the respect that all of us deserve. That belief includes every member it serves, no matter where they live, or where they do business. 

Credit Human is committed to being good stewards of the resources members entrust with the company, and that commitment to stewardship extends to its community and the environment. That commitment is backed by its policies, including the Environmental Stewardship Policy adopted in September 2021. That policy is specific to its headquarters at 1703 Broadway and is currently being extended to include all of Credit Human. The new policy will address buildings, transportation, and solid waste reduction.

Its commitment to environmental stewardship also reflects in its strategic objectives, including goal #5 to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) Emissions by 50% by 2025. From baseline to current, Credit Human has reduced GHG emissions by 72%. This was achieved by selling inefficient buildings, leasing and building out more efficient units, and building the new Credit Human headquarters. The current headquarters has an official ENERGY STAR score of 94, is certified LEED Platinum, was recognized by the EPA for the envelope to be 40% tighter than other buildings of its size, and was the first building in San Antonio to receive the Build San Antonio Green Resilient Building certification. The new headquarters has saved 90% in utility costs compared to the old headquarters while having 52% more square footage.

Credit Human is dedicated to environmental stewardship. Currently the worst users are being targeted in the portfolio. Each building will have unique solutions to further reduce utility consumption. Discussions have ranged from air-sealing to upgrading current HVAC systems to heat-pumps or geothermal. 

Credit Human won a 2023 Better Project Award for ensuring their new 12-story headquarters building is nearly 65% more efficient than comparable buildings.
