Interim CEO Sharon Stromdahl highlighted the commitment to sustainability that Northern Savings was engaged in with the paperless initiative one that can involved their membership as well:

“Environmental sustainability is recognized in our governing policies and we are proud to be taking proactive steps in reducing our environmental footprint,” ... Consumers (members) have shifted towards a paperless statement environment as access to technology has vastly increased. With electronic statements, we can provide statements in a safe, convenient, and environmentally friendly way.”
