We Believe Money Isn’t the Only Thing Worth Saving

As one of Canada’s largest banks and one of the largest banks in the world, we recognize the impact we have on the communities in which we live and work. Since developing our first environmental policy in 1991, we have been focused on environmental management and continuous improvement. We develop policies and build programs that reduce our impact in three priority areas: climate change, sustainable communities and fresh water. Browse the tabs below to learn more about how we are embedding environmental management into our business.

What’s New: RBC's Headquarters in Winnipeg Achieve LEED Platinum

The headquarters for RBC's Saskatchewan, Manitoba and northwestern Ontario banking operations is the first office tower to obtain LEED Platinum Existing Building certification in Manitoba. The building generates almost 40% less greenhouse gas emissions, uses 37% less water and diverts over 30% more waste from landfill than an average Canadian office building. Built in 1966, 220 Portage Avenue is a shining example that older buildings can be environmental leaders.
