Here are some of the ways in which Scotiabank engages with environmental stakeholders:
- Scotiabank is a longstanding member of the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and participates in its North American Task Force (NATF).
- Each year, the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the world's largest investor coalition, solicits carbon disclosure data from 3,000 companies worldwide, including 200 Canadian companies. Scotiabank is a signatory to the CDP and a sponsor of CDP Canada, as well as a member of the CDP Advisory Committee (Canada). Most recently, Scotiabank was listed on the 2012 CDP Canada 200 Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI).

- Scotiabank participates in the Leadership Council of the Greening Greater Toronto Initiative of the Toronto City Summit Alliance. This group focuses on the promotion of the business case for commercial building energy efficiencies and on the dissemination of best practices. Scotiabank Mexico participates and coordinates the Sustainability Committee of the Bank Association of Mexico, an association that brings together over 41 financial institutions operating in Mexico. The Sustainability Committee provides a forum for discussion and the sharing of best practices around sustainability. This committee also produces a CSR report, which is unique to other Banking associations in Latin America.
- Scotiabank is a signatory to the UN Global Compact. Across Latin America and the Caribbean, Scotiabank participates in various local networks of the UN Global Compact to share best practices and engage in common activities around the 10 principles, many of which are environmentally focused.
