Making An Impact

We are committed to creating positive change. Our company proudly invests in growing a talented, diverse and inclusive team, while also supporting the communities where we live.

SUSTAINABILITY:

Investing in our People, Communities and Environment with Integrity and Strong Governance.

Investing in a Sustainable Future

Ameris Bank recognizes how we all play a part and have a responsibility to address the challenges of global climate change. With the support of a third-party energy consultant, Ameris Bank has plans to further reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gases across all our facilities. In 2021, Ameris Bank committed to initiatives aimed at lessening energy consumption across 273 buildings beginning in 2022. These actions include enhanced HVAC controls and building automation, as well as the replacing of LED lighting that is estimated to reduce electricity by 50-55 percent. These changes are expected to save 2,200 carbon tons and cut kilowatt hours by 2.6 million. The bank continues to convert thousands of customers to e-statements, online banking, mobile banking and other digital offerings.

Building Stronger Communities

Ameris Bank teammates passionately give time, talents and resources to support our communities, with efforts to improve educational equality, housing affordability and the overall health and wellbeing of those within the community. In 2021, Ameris Bank gave over $2.5 million to philanthropic and civic organizations. Ameris Bank made homeownership a reality for 28,062 buyers. We are proud of our efforts to make homeownership a reality for 8,989 first-time homebuyers; 5,102 buyers through VA, FHA or USDA programs; and 625 buyers through down payment assistance programs.
