How to advance sustainable finance in 2023

Date: Jan 20, 2023
Time: 2:00-3:00pm ET
Location: Virtual

Philanthropy has been influential in advancing Canada’s sustainable finance agenda. Yet research shows that Canada lags on many important progress indicators when it comes to aligning financial policies and mobilizing private capital towards our climate goals. What are the next steps for Canada’s sustainable finance agenda and how can philanthropy have the greatest impact in 2023? 

This webinar will summarize a new landscape study, commissioned by the Clean Economy Fund, which maps out:

  • What NGOs are working on sustainable finance in Canada, and what are their workplans in 2023?
  • How do these workplans address the progress indicators on which Canada is lagging?
  • Where are the biggest opportunities and where are there noteworthy gaps in NGO work on sustainable finance in 2023?

Commission for Carbon Competitiveness

Date: Jan 30, 2023
Time: 2:00-3:00pm ET
Location: Virtual

Energy-intensive and trade-exposed (EITE) sectors like steel manufacturing and cement production account for more than 30% of Canada’s carbon emissions. Decarbonizing these sectors while protecting their economic competitiveness is one of the trickiest policy challenges facing Canadian policy makers. 

This webinar is an opportunity to hear about a specific project opportunity designed to address this challenge. The “Commission for Carbon Competitiveness” project has secured funding commitments but is seeking 1-2 additional funding partners to become a reality.
