source ABC (AU, rel=”nofollow” title Bank of American Corp is getting green dots, too article Bank of Americans has been doing it right this whole time, but it’s about to get a little more attention from the Australian financial markets.
The bank has just started the rollout of a new green dot in the account numbers section.
“The bank’s commitment to sustainability and green building initiatives, and to being a bank that is committed to the health and wellbeing of the community is important to us,” the bank’s chief financial officer John Harkins said.
Bank of America is the latest financial institution to adopt the new green design, which the bank says has been a long time in the making.
Its logo is a nod to the bank, with green dots on the top of the sign, followed by a circle and the word bank.
It is also the first major bank to introduce the green dot design, and is expected to be a significant part of bank branding in Australia, especially for those in rural communities.
ANZ: green dots at top and bottom,anz,an,anx source ABC: ABC News article The Australian financial market is in a bit of a frenzy over ANZ, with banks scrambling to put their green dots to good use.
Anz announced a major new investment in green dot branding on Monday, with the bank taking a cue from the likes of Apple and Google to put its logo on its account numbers.
In an email to staff, Anz CEO Paul Taylor said the bank would be “releasing a new set of ANZ green dot products to our customers as part of a broader effort to reduce COVID-19 activity in our retail and wholesale customers”.
Anzac’s green dot will be a white dot on a grey background.
The bank will also make its green dot easier to see by using a circular logo design that will appear above the bank number.
