CIBC supports global environmental initiatives including the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

The CDP holds the largest database of corporate climate change information in the world. Project participants, including CIBC, voluntarily disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies. The CDP makes this data widely available to institutional investors, corporations, governments, regulators, academics and other stakeholders, including the general public.

CIBC is also a corporate member of the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC), whose mission is to lead and accelerate the transformation to high-performing, healthy green buildings, homes and communities throughout Canada.

Community investment

At CIBC, we partner with organizations dedicated to environmental protection and awareness. Over the last five years, CIBC has donated more than $1 million to environmental programs and initiatives across Canada such as the Trans Canada Trail.

CIBC became a proud supporter of the Trans Canada Trail, Chapter 150 Campaign in 2014 by committing $500,000 over five years. The campaign’s goal is to connect the trail across the country from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic Oceans in time for two milestones in 2017—the 150th anniversary of Confederation and the 25th anniversary of the trail’s inception.

Examples of our other recent community investments include:
