The RBC Tech for Nature Grant Program is now open for applications.
The pressing environmental challenges of today are growing at a rate that often outpaces the solutions designed to address them. They recognize that technology offers immense potential to develop innovative solutions that provide new pathways to address those challenges. RBC is leveraging its technology capabilities in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and app development to work with charitable partners to address water, climate and other environmental challenges. They are actively seeking partners who share the vision and are pursuing technology-based solutions.
- Data: There is a lack of organized data on the health of our planet and how actions affect it. They believe creating a common language about the environment through data will allow for informed and meaningful decision-making.
- Innovative Ecosystem: They believe that they need to launch and scale up game-changing solutions by empowering the entrepreneurs, ventures and charities working to build solutions to solve the pressing environmental challenges
- Communities of Action: Each person holds more power than they know. They believe that through technology, they can empower individuals to work with their communities and positively change their behaviour to produce a notable change for our planet.
The RBC Foundation is committing $100 million by 2025 to innovate environmental programs.
- They are proud to support more than 100 charitable partners implementing new ideas, technology and collaboration that address the planet’s most pressing needs.
