RBC named to “Canada’s Greenest Employers” list for seventh consecutive year

TORONTO, April 22, 2015 -  RBC has been named one of Canada's Greenest Employers, according to a competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers project. Now in its 9th year, this special designation recognizes the employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations.

Winners were evaluated on four factors: unique initiatives and programs; reduction of environmental footprint; employee involvement, and the link between the company’s ‘green’ initiatives and its public identity.

Employers who receive this designation are recognized for developing exceptional earth-friendly initiatives and for attracting people to their organizations because of their environmental leadership.
