Energy and environment

ECOnomics. Helping build our local green economy.

Looking for ways to make your organization greener?

If you're a business, not-for-profit, First Nation government, social enterprise, co-operative, or strata and you're looking to finance a green building project, energy efficiency upgrade or innovative environmental or clean technology initiative, then we want to talk to you.

Vancity invests in businesses that are producing green products and services; clean technologies like waste, water and energy efficiency and renewable energy; or actively improving their environmental performance.

We are particularly interested in the energy efficiency of buildings recognizing the impact of the built environment on climate change, and financing green buildings.

Cut your energy use down to size

At Vancity, we've worked hard to reduce our carbon dioxide (CO2e) emissions. In 2007, we became the first carbon neutral financial institution in North America. So it's important we help our members do the same. Learn more in our Partnerships and Learning, networking, resources and events .
