The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. is one of the nation's largest diversified financial services organizations, with more than $269 billion in assets as of September 30, 2011. PNC provides consumer and small business banking primarily in 15 states and the District of Columbia, with residential mortgage banking and corporate and institutional banking offices across the continental United States. As a leader in energy efficiency, PNC has already reduced its energy usage 6% compared to 2009 through its $20 million lighting retrofit program and other innovative efforts.

As part of the Better Buildings Challenge, PNC is working towards a 30% energy reduction goal in 26 million square feet by 2020 across 3,200 properties, both retail bank branches and corporate offices. PNC’s participation in the Better Buildings Challenge and its examples of success will provide a great model for other organizations with a large number of locations.
