RBC is recognized as one of “Canada’s Greenest Employers”

TORONTO, April 22, 2016 - RBC has been named one of Canada's Greenest Employers eight years running. This award honours our environmental stewardship and how we help employees put their passion about the environment into action through employee-led green initiatives. These initiatives help our employees achieve our purpose of helping clients thrive and communities prosper.

“I’m always impressed by the passion and enthusiasm demonstrated for the environment by employees every day,” says Andrew Craig, Director, Corporate Environmental Affairs, RBC. “It helps push us in new directions that enable RBC to reduce its environmental footprint, lend responsibly and support our client’s green business initiatives. We know companies that are driven by environmental and social purpose continue to gain a competitive advantage in Canada.”

Now entering its 10th year, Canada's Greenest Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes the employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness.

Winners, selected by the editors at Canada’s Top 100 Employers, are evaluated on four factors: unique environmental initiatives or programs they have developed; whether they have been successful in reducing their own environmental footprint; whether their employees are involved in these programs and contribute any unique skills; and whether their environmental initiatives have become linked to the employer’s public identity and attract new people to the organization.
