As part of our commitment to our communities, Olympia Federal is focused on a variety of initiatives and innovations to make our company, our branch offices and our community more environmentally friendly. Stay posted to this page where we'll share our progress.

Green Choice Lending

If you are considering buying, building or retrofitting with energy efficiency in mind, consider Olympia Federal Savings and our Green Lending options.

Green Branch Offices

Our newest branch in Yelm opened in August 2015 and was conceived and constructed for energy efficiency and LEED Certification. Our recently remodeled West Olympia branch was awarded LEED Gold Certification in September 2014.  And Belfair – our first green branch – achieved LEED Gold Certification after opening in December 2010. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized mark of excellence in green building. These branches feature solar roof panels and radiant floor heating among the many other environmental aspects.
