Our Environmentally Responsible Procurement Standard describes our requirements for the procurement of goods and services that may be associated with significant adverse environmental impacts. We’re committed to working with suppliers who share our level of concern for the environment and who provide a safe and respectful workplace for their employees, as supported by our CIBC Supplier Code of Conduct.

Our employees and the environment

We actively communicate our Corporate Environmental Policy (PDF, 95 KB)  Opens in a new window. and program initiatives to our employees. We strive to educate, train and motivate our employees to conduct activities in an environmentally responsible manner.

Our employees support numerous activities throughout the year focused on making a positive impact on our environment and the community. Some examples of these activities include CIBC Environment Day, Earth Hour™ and Earth Day®. We also promote our CIBC Community Clean-Up initiative, where CIBC employees are encouraged to clean up their neighborhoods for reward dollars that are donated back to their charities of choice.
