ROYAL BANK OF CANADA (RBC)
RBC is one of North America’s largest financial institution, that has a history of philanthropy and community involvement dating back to the 1890s. In late 2007, water became a priority for RBC’s community and environmental programs. With the launch of the RBC Blue Water Project, RBC is recognized among the world’s financial, social and environmental leaders and contributed $99 million to community causes worldwide in 2008 through donations and sponsorships. In 2009, RBC became a founding partner of the National Geographic Freshwater Initiative. Thus, through the RBC Blue Water Project, a ten-year multimillion-dollar commitment was to foster a culture of water stewardship worldwide. RBC is seeking to contribute to the future of sustainable water resources worldwide. The RBC Blue Water Project showcases RBC’s longstanding commitment to environmental sustainability, which makes it a natural fit for National Geographic and its mission of “inspiring people to care about the planet.”
