At this defining moment for our industry to lead in sustainability, come learn, share, and network.

Because of our community focus, credit unions are in a unique position to make a difference. The United in Sustainability Credit Union Summit was established to bring together credit unions and industry professionals to share best practices and ideas. By collaborating, we can accelerate our sustainability journeys and tackle environmental and socio-economic issues to benefit planet and people.


United in Sustainability (UIS) is a network of North American credit unions and associations dedicated to positively impacting our world. 

The annual United in Sustainability (UIS) Summit was established in 2018. It serves as a platform for credit unions and industry thought leaders to benefit from timely information, tools, and resources.

By making positive and proactive choices, sustainability can further credit unions’ organizational growth, performance, and engagement with members and staff. The Summit also provides an opportunity to learn how the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs,  can impact our communities.  In localizing the SDGs, our collective actions can build a better, more sustainable future.



Credit union product line managers, corporate investments, marketing, human resources, facilities, procurement professionals, sustainability officers, senior management, and Board members, as well as association and league representatives.

Whether you are just starting your sustainability journey or looking to accelerate your credit union’s efforts, make plans to virtually attend the United in Sustainability Credit Union Summit.

We were inspired hearing credit unions tell their stories on environmental best practices, and how sustainability initiatives can benefit members, staff, and the bottom line.

The United in Sustainability Summit was a game changer for me. After attending my first conference in 2018, I realized that each one of us can and should, in our own environments, become agents of change for sustainability; every action, every step we take makes a difference. As leaders, it is up to us to set the example.
