Across sectors, CIBC Capital Markets has a long history of providing financial and advisory solutions to clients that are expected to play a role in the transition to a low-carbon economy. We’re at the forefront of financing new and innovative projects and businesses that contribute to renewable and emissions-free energy, energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure and technology, sustainable real estate, sustainable forestry and agriculture. 

We’re focused on increasing lending and capital markets activities to ESG-driven business leaders, including a growth of products such as green or sustainability-linked financial products. Particularly in 2020, we advised and mobilized $15.7 billion in environmental and sustainable finance activities, achieving a cumulative 14% of our 13-year target. This included approximately $5.9 billion in advisory to clients on environmental and sustainable financial investments and acquisitions.

During the year, we continued to build and maintain our position as a leading renewables capital markets provider with renewable and emissions-free energy representing 73% of our sustainable finance activities in 2020, contributing to the further decarbonization of the electricity sector in North America and globally.
