Environmental sustainability

We want to enhance the environmental sustainability of our members’ lives and their communities. This means being environmentally conscious in our operations through energy efficiency, recycling and the selection of green building materials in our facilities, as well as providing “green” advice to members and financial support for organizations active in developing technology and services that benefit the environment.

Environmental commitments

Our goal is to continue to provide clear environmental sustainability leadership in the
financial sector. We’re committed to action on four fronts:

  • Reducing the negative environmental impact of our operations
  • Helping members and employees act by providing education, products and services that benefit the environment
  • Enabling the community to act by funding projects that reduce negative environmental impact
  • Encouraging governments to implement public policy changes that reduce negative environmental impact.

Carbon neutral

We’ve been carbon neutral since 2008. Our goal is to measure and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, then offset emissions through the purchase of carbon offsets from emission-reducing activities that others have undertaken.
