We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment
The way businesses conduct themselves can significantly affect the sustainability of our world. By responding to environmental issues now, we can enhance the ability of customers to become better off, reduce environmental risks, and protect the environment for both current and future generations.
In Costa Rica, the environment is very important; we are definitely a green country. La Sabana’s green space is important to our customers and to us. La Sabana is right in front of Scotiabank’s main building, so restoring the park was a great way to demonstrate our commitment to the environment and our community.
We want to engage in environmental initiatives that are important to our customers and the bank. The park restoration was a good way for us to do that. Now, together with the government and local partners, we are continuing to make that happen.
To demonstrate our commitment to a better future, we invest our resources in CSR priorities where we believe we can make the most progress for both society and our Bank.
A better future needs a healthy planet. By setting emission reduction targets and taking action to meet them, we seek to reduce our impact on climate change.
Businesses have an opportunity to help create a better future. As a bank, we make investments in sustainable solutions and lend in a way that mitigates social and environmental risk.
Here's how we are making progress on our commitment to the environment.
