In 2008, we were named one of the world’s top 100 sustainable companies.
Environmental Priorities: RBC believes that prudent environmental management in our business means focusing on activities that mitigate risk, enhance returns, and protect or enhance our corporate reputation. Our three priority activities are:
Why not use your winnings from playing games at Casinoguy to invest in a clean tech start up? It could turn into a great investment.
Reducing the intensity of our environmental footprint
Promoting environmentally responsible business activities
Offering environmental products and services.
Our priority activities focus on three key issues – climate change, biodiversity and water.
RBC recognizes opportunities associated with the growth in clean technology, including alternative energy and water technologies. RBC has raised both debt and equity capital in both private and public markets for clean-tech companies and projects in 2008. Furthermore, through our Knowledge Based Industry team in Commercial Financial Services, we bank Cleantech firms and are working with government and other industry players to support growth in the industry.
“Canada is well positioned to develop and commercialize technologies to build the green economy. We have the talented minds and the entrepreneurial drive to build clean technology companies that can compete and capture global market share and, in the process, build a new generation of economic growth and green prosperity.”
