Through the Tech for Nature program, RBC shows its commitment to innovation, data and technologies for the shared future. RBC works with partners to leverage technology and innovation capabilities to solve pressing environmental challenges.

Multi-Sectoral Approach

The program aims to develop multi-sector partnerships to create positive progress.

Technology & the Environment

Technology offers immense potential to develop innovative solutions that provide new pathways to address environmental challenges. RBC is leveraging its technology capabilities in areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and app development to work with charitable partners to address water and climate challenges. RBC is actively seeking partners who share their vision and are pursuing technology based solutions.

  • Data: Transforming the collection, accuracy and availability of environmental data; building tools to democratize information; enhancing predictive capabilities; to help people, communities and scientists make informed decisions.
  • Innovation Ecosystem: Fostering an innovation ecosystem of environmental entrepreneurs, ventures, and charities that are developing technology solutions to address environmental challenges.
  • Behavior Change: Using technology to create positive behavior change and increase environmental stewardship.
