RBC is a leader in sustainability, another key area of focus for responsible investors. Our approach to sustainability is central to our business and to our stated purpose: to help clients thrive and communities prosper. RBC is listed as a holding in several responsible investing indexes, including Pax Ellevate Management’s Impax Global Women’s Leadership Index and the FTSE4Good Index. We also believe capital can be a force for positive change, clearly demonstrated by a new business target: $500 billion in sustainable finance by 2025.
This commitment supports our enterprise climate strategy, the RBC Climate Blueprint, aimed at accelerating clean economic growth through our strengths in finance, innovation, community investments and more. Tackling climate change presents a big challenge and an even greater opportunity, one that will impact all of our lives, and those of generations to come. As part of our strategy, we will look to monitor, measure and report efforts towards net-zero, and promote climate literacy, offering ideas that support a successful transition. This also includes RBC Tech for Nature, a multi-year commitment to new ideas, technologies and partnerships focused on finding solutions to shared environmental challenges. RBC is committed to playing our part to contribute to a healthier world.
