RBC today announced its updated roster of partners for the RBC Tech for Nature program. Empowered by a commitment from the RBC Foundation to support new ideas, technologies, and partnerships, RBC Tech for Nature is focused on preserving the planet’s greatest wealth: our natural ecosystem. Launched in late 2019, the program invited environment and community-focused organizations to submit their application to join the ongoing commitment to advancing sustainability through technology-driven solutions.
Our approach is based on the belief that innovative usage of data and technology can fundamentally transform and improve the world we live in. RBC Tech for Nature brings together charitable partners, technology experts, the public and private sector, as well as RBC’s own unique capabilities to build the multi-partner coalitions needed to work towards solving our shared environmental challenges.
“The effects of climate change connect us all. The actions we take today can prepare us with the solutions needed to protect our shared future,” said Valerie Chort, Vice-President of Corporate Citizenship for RBC and Executive Chair of the RBC Foundation. “At RBC, we believe climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. That’s why we continue to invest in a diverse set of partners and technologies solving environmental challenges – and support innovative ideas that move us towards a sustainable economy.”
There has never been a greater opportunity for leadership, collaboration, ingenuity, and vision as it relates to the environment. Through the support of RBC Tech for Nature, our partners will be enabled to accelerate and scale the solutions needed to address our most pressing environmental challenges. Below are examples of our partners and their innovative solutions:
In addition to accelerating and scaling technology innovations, RBC Tech for Nature also supports projects that improve the availability and accuracy of environmental data, influence positive behavior change as it relates to environmental conservation, and result in tangible outcomes for more sustainable communities.
RBC Tech for Nature is a core pillar of RBC’s Climate Blueprint – our enterprise approach to accelerating clean economic growth and supporting clients in the transition to a low-carbon, sustainable economy – and contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
