We are committed to protecting the world’s most precious natural resource: fresh water. The RBC Blue Water Project is a 10-year, $50 million commitment supporting organisations focused on areas of watershed protection and access to clean drinking water in our growing towns and cities around the world.
Our Wealth Management employees are passionate volunteers. Since the project’s inception in 2007, Wealth Management employees have rolled up their sleeves, taking to the streets, parks, shorelines and local green spaces to help participate in Blue Water makeovers and awareness events, which help provide access to drinkable, swimmable and fishable water, now and for future generations.
In 2015, we completed 105 makeovers in communities where we have a business presence. We can’t wait to roll up our sleeves again for Blue Water Day 2016.
