Driven by our mandate, and guided by our vision and values, we aspire to be a powerful force for good for Canadians and the world – as leaders in international trade. Our 2030 Strategy is our blueprint.
In 2014, EDC was the first Canadian financial institution to issue a green bond. The funds raised from EDC’s green bonds have financed many transactions, worth more than $2 billion, contributing to environmental protection or the mitigation of climate change.
For certain products, we require customers in the upstream and downstream oil and gas sectors to produce and publish a climate change report aligned with the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). We’ve developed a guide to help customers fulfill these reporting requirements.
EDC is part of the growing list of international financial institutions committed to the Equator Principles, a financial industry benchmark for the determination, assessment and management of social and environmental risk in project financing. We report annually on our implementation.
