2022 Bold Steps Winner Summit Bank

Congratulations to Summit Bank, the 2022 Bold Steps Award Winner!


This year, Summit Bank was named winner of the Bold Steps Award by Eugene Mayor, Lucy Vinis. 

Summit Bank is a locally owned business bank that has been recognized as one of the top 100 Green Businesses by Oregon Business Magazine for several years in a row. Giving back to the community is the cornerstone of Summit Bank’s mission, donating $150,000 for microloans to underserved members of our community, particularly those operating out of low income areas.

The business gets to take the Bold Steps trophy to display for one year.

For the City of Eugene, sustainability means considering and balancing all three aspects of the triple bottom line – people, planet and prosperity – to address the community’s present needs without compromising future generations. The Bold Steps award recognizes businesses that embody this vision and are taking bold steps in each area of the triple bottom line.

To qualify for consideration for the Bold Steps award, businesses must be based in Eugene, and certified through the Rethink program, offered through BRING Recycling. Through Rethink, businesses receive free, on-site consultation to reduce waste and save money.
