Beyond Net-Zero:
Finance as a Catalyst
for Change

On the occasion of COP 26, a diverse array of financial institutions - banks, insurers, pension funds, asset managers - committed to achieving ambitious, science-based goals to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 at the latest. However, the transition to a more prosperous, inclusive and sustainable economy will require the financial sector to mobilize well beyond net-zero. To do so, moving from the integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations to impact measurement will accelerate the implementation of best practices in sustainable finance and thus seize the immense opportunities represented by this still-emerging sector.

How can we ensure that our investments generate the expected environmental and social benefits? How can financial institutions combine climate action and the preservation of biodiversity? How can blended finance be a driver for impact? How do we take into accountthesocial challenges brought about by the transition to a low-carbon society? As global sustainability challenges become more and more interconnected, finance is in a unique position to act as a catalyst for systemic change.These goals will guide the conversations at the 2022 Sustainable Finance Summit. Join us to learn about the Canadian sustainable finance ecosystem and the challenges & opportunities the industry faces.
