Our objectives? Maintain our environmental leadership in North America, reduce our GHG emissions by 25% by the end of 2025 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
We work with several partners to carry out a leadership role in the development of an inclusive and proud community.
We actively support women, cultural communities and the LGBTQ+ community through various partnerships.
We are also featured in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index and Canada's Best Diversity Employers.
Our goal? To increase diversity and inclusion in our workforce by the end of 2023 by employing more than a quarter of individuals from diverse backgrounds.

At National Bank, we are committed to creating a positive impact in people's lives. We integrate environmental, social and governance issues into our business and operational decisions.
As an important economic player in Quebec and Canada since 1859, National Bank aims to foster the development of the communities it serves.
We have achieved this goal through well-defined donation and sponsorship programs, through the commitment of our employees and retirees who are volunteers in their communities, and through successful fundraising efforts with our clients' participation.
We support over 300 organizations across Canada involved in many areas such as entrepreneurship, health, education, arts and culture, cybersecurity, financial literacy and sports. We also have 26,000 employees active in the community every day.
