Launched in 2007, the RBC Blue Water Project is a 10-year global commitment of $50 million (CAD) to help protect the world's most precious natural resource: fresh water. RBC Wealth Management is proud to support this important enterprise-wide initiative.
To date, the RBC Blue Water Project has pledged over $36 million (CAD) to more than 500 charitable organizations worldwide that protect watersheds and promote access to clean drinking water.
In 2013-2014, the RBC Blue Water Project will focus on supporting initiatives that help protect and preserve water in towns, cities and urbanized areas. In addition, we are also promoting responsible water use with our employees and clients, reducing the intensity of our own water footprint and encouraging the growth of water businesses in North America.
On June 12, 2014, RBC employees around the globe took part in RBC Blue Water Community Makeovers to help create awareness about urban watershed issues. Watch the video below to see some of the great work we did on Blue Water Day in 2013 or visit the RBC Blue Water Project website to learn how you can join in.
