Founded in 1997, Citizens Bank of Canada took a bold step to become Canada’s first branchless bank. We’ve been setting the pace ever since by delivering more when it matters most: more value, more service and more convenience. You also get more in a unique way. We’re the only Canadian bank with a clear ethical policy on social and environmental issues. So you can put your money where your heart is. Citizens Bank supports those in Canada and abroad who believe in respect and fair treatment, environmental leadership, healthy lifestyles, ethical business practices, and peaceful communities.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is part of our DNA. We want to leave the world better than we found it. And that means we care about more than just money. When we make decisions, we take all our stakeholders into account – members, employees, communities and the environment. Not only are we the only Canadian bank with a stated Ethical Policy on key social and environmental issues, but we report on our progress every two years in our externally-verified Accountability Report. Because we believe so strongly in defining success beyond the financial bottom line, we were especially proud to receive the top ranking among the country’s banks for CSR in Report on Business Magazine’s 2005 survey.
At Citizens Bank, we have committed to neutralize our carbon dioxide (C0 2) emissions by 2010. C0 2is the most harmful of the greenhouse gases that cause climate change. Going carbon neutral means the Bank will take major steps to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. What we can’t reduce, we will “offset” by investing in local energy projects. Each year, businesses pump out more than 35 per cent of the greenhouse gases that accelerate climate change. In the service sector, executives’ frequent business travel bears some of the greatest responsibility for corporate caused emissions. We’ll be starting with improving the carbon neutrality of our top executives by examining and, where necessary, tweaking their transportation choices. The rest of the Bank will focus on reducing office paper use (we’re already the first Canadian financial institution to go 100 per cent post consumer waste), improving energy efficiency, and reducing emissions from employee transportation and business travel. We are absolutely committed to doing our part, not only to meet carbon neutral targets, but to set an example for other organizations. Citizens Bank derives its stability and ethical grounding from being owned by Canada’s largest credit union, the Vancity group of companies, with over $10.5 billion in assets.
We’re a member of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, so your money’s safe, no matter what. To learn more about climate change and Citizens Bank -Canada, visit www.citizensbank.ca.

The Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE), Canada’s centre of excellence for energy conservation, energy efficiency and alternative fuels information, is playing a dynamic leadership role in helping Canadians save millions of dollars in energy costs while contributing to a healthier environment. One of the OEE’s key tasks is managing the Government of Canada’s new ecoENERGY Efficiency Initiative, with its programs to reduce energy use in buildings and houses, industry, retrofits, personal vehicles and fleets. Homeowners and owners of small and medium-sized organizations can also apply for ecoENERGY Retrofit grants and financial incentives. In addition, the OEE promotes other energy-efficient transportation choices. The OEE provides practical energy conservation advice to consumers, school boards, businesses and institutions, and has links to hundreds of related sites around the world.
With the assistance of the National Advisory Council on Energy Efficiency, the OEE is also charged with identifying opportunities for new and heightened energy efficiency measures. As well, it keeps Canadians abreast of developments in technology that can conserve fossil fuels or support the transition to less carbon-intensive energy sources, including renewable energy. Informing key decision-makers in government, industry and the environmental and international communities about Canada’s energy conservation and energy efficiency efforts and successes is a major focus of the OEE. Toward this end, the OEE publishes an annual report entitled The State of Energy Efficiency in Canada (available online). The OEE is aggressively pursuing its vision of “Leading Canadians to Energy Efficiency at Home, at Work and on the Road” in ways that benefit both the environment and the economy.
