In October 2022, Laurentian Bank established its inaugural Sustainable Bond Framework, enabling the Bank to issue Green, Social and Sustainability Bonds (collectively, Sustainable Bonds). The issuance of these Bonds aligns with one of our key strategic pillars – Making the Better Choice.
The eligible categories for the Use of Proceeds include Renewable Energy, Green Buildings, Energy Efficiency, Low-Carbon Transportation, Affordable Housing, Access to Essential Services, Majority Women-Owned SME Financing, and Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion.
"At Laurentian Bank, we believe we can change banking for the better by supporting our customers in making the better choice in terms of environmental, social and governance (ESG) best practices. The introduction of this Sustainable Bond Framework is a critical step in the rollout of the Bank’s strategic plan, which is anchored in a commitment to incorporating ESG into all of our operations and activities."
