RBC recognizes the importance our natural systems have on a productive economy and healthy society. Because of this, I believe we must not merely meet our environmental targets, we must exceed them and demonstrate leadership as Canada’s largest bank. Acting on that belief, RBC is one of the largest purchasers of renewable energy and one of the largest leasers of LEED certified office space in Canada. We have historically exceeded our greenhouse gas reduction targets for our operations and we work closely with our suppliers to improve their environmental and social impacts. It’s not merely good business, it’s a business doing good for all its stakeholders.
