We provide meaningful support to clients focused on environmental, social and economic goals.
We support clients that are pursuing sustainable outcomes through their businesses; this includes clients that are focused on the “triple bottom line,” otherwise known as economic, environmental and social outcomes. These clients are focused on both the immediate and long-term impact of their economic decisions on people and the planet.
Many sustainable companies that we support are committed to furthering the objectives of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
Our work with Lion Electric is a great example. Lion is an innovator and established industry leader in the zero-emission vehicles space, and one of the top Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) in transportation electrification in North America. We’re helping them achieve their ambitious expansion plans while producing sustainable outcomes. Read more about it on our blog.
Another example is Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners, which operates one of the world’s largest publicly-traded renewable power platforms and is a global leader in hydroelectric and other forms of renewable power. BMO acted as bookrunner on a Brookfield Green Bond in August 2020.
BMO supports our clients by structuring products that align with their sustainability objectives – as well as those of broader society.
Environmental and social risk management
BMO integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into our financing and lending activities – mitigating risk while creating the conditions
that drive a more sustainable future.
