RBC Is Recognized As One Of Canada's Greenest Employers For 2014

TORONTO, April 22, 2014 /CNW/ - What is the one thing your life depends on most? Water probably wasn't the first thing that came to mind but it should - it is one of the most important natural resources on earth - one that all life depends on. We believe in helping provide access to swimmable, fishable, drinkable water through our RBC Blue Water Project. Water is just one of the environmental issues we are committed to in addition to reducing our own environmental footprint and providing our clients with environmental products and services.

For the sixth consecutive year, RBC has been selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc. in its annual survey of Canadian businesses.

Canada's Greenest Employers recognizes the employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations. These leading Canadian employers have developed exceptional earth-friendly initiatives and are attracting people to their organizations because of their environmental leadership.

RBC is being recognized for our commitments to reducing our environmental footprint, managing environmental and social risk, providing our clients with environmental products and services and promoting environmental sustainability in our communities.

"One of the truly great things about working for an organization like RBC is seeing what happens when our employees, individually and collectively, act on our commitments and bring our programs and initiatives to life for the good of our society and the environment" said Shari Austin, vice-president, RBC Corporate Citizenship and executive director, RBC Foundation. "It's one of the ways that we take responsibility for our own direct and indirect environmental impacts. We are honoured to be recognized for these efforts."

This year's winners are being announced today in a special editorial supplement in The Globe and Mail.
