The NEO Exchange & RBC

Financing Nature-Based Solutions

Imagine a world...

where financial institutions promote and protect biodiversity.

Nature preservation is critical to mitigating climate change. Yet, human activity has caused extensive biodiversity loss, soil erosion, water scarcity, and forest degradation—depleting the power of nature and exacerbating our climate problems.

To help offset these activities, and direct money into replenishing our natural ecosystems, the NEO Exchange, a Tier 1 stock exchange that caters to the innovation economy in Canada, is spearheading a unique collaboration to build a nature-based financial instrument, in partnership with the Royal Bank of Canada. This tool will be designed to meet the demands of a growing subset of environmentally-savvy investors that want to use their money to create a better planet—as well as those that are simply looking for a new investment option.

Guided by the Innovation North Compass, NEO and RBC will expand their customer bases, engage new investors, and facilitate much-needed action in repairing the biodiversity crisis.
