Saving resources, planting trees, helping our communities

February 23, 2022

At CC&L Private Capital, we believe our success as individuals and as a company depends on the health of the communities in which we live and work. To that end, we have focused on saving paper usage by encouraging our clients to switch to receiving their regular reporting package in an electronic format instead of on paper.

Switching has several benefits for clients beyond conserving precious natural resources; for example, it enables clients to view their reports on a computer or smart device, and clients can receive their reports in a more timely fashion. We are pleased that many are already benefitting from this experience.

Still, we wanted to go further. In September 2021, we partnered with Tree Canada, the only national non-profit organization dedicated to planting and nurturing trees in rural and urban environments. Working together, CC&L Private Capital committed to planting ten trees with Tree Canada each time a client switched to electronic reporting. These efforts help to support the restoration of forests and wildlife habitat, and contribute to cleaner air, cleaner soil, and cleaner waterways.

“We are so grateful for our partnership with Connor, Clark & Lunn Private Capital and their support of our mission through the planting of over 1,300 trees!” says Danielle St-Aubin, CEO, Tree Canada. “They are helping to improve the lives of Canadians now and for generations to come.”

The tree-planting campaign is ongoing, and we look forward to continuing to improve the health of our local communities together with Tree Canada and our clients.
