The company is assessing the viability of moving to a solar power-based electrical supply and implementing the Energy Star system to track its greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental metrics. Pinnacle also provides options for clients to minimize their carbon impact, such as eStatements and online banking.

Pinnacle has formed a Climate and Sustainability Committee to oversee climate-related sustainability practices and policies. The committee will assess the company's physical risks with regard to climate change, risks with regard to the transition to a zero-carbon economy, and identify opportunities presented by the carbon transition. The company's Solar Capital Advisory, formed in 2021, focuses exclusively on providing structured financing solutions to facilitate the build-out of significant solar capacity throughout the country.
Pinnacle plans to produce an initial Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) report in 2023 and engage a major multinational consulting firm to partner on a full assessment of the company's sustainability position and how to move forward. The company aims to accurately report its own footprint and any other metrics required by financial regulators, assess the risk to its firm posed by climate change and the transition to a zero-carbon economy, and identify and capitalize on opportunities to help businesses transition to lower-impact environmental practices and produce viable forms of alternative energy.
In conclusion, Pinnacle Financial is committed to making smart decisions for the planet that can also be smart for business. The company is working to find a balance in the face of climate change, the transition to a zero-carbon economy, and expected regulatory requirements.
