The Sustainable Finance Forum on Parliament Hill was a two-day event on November 2-3, 2022, and included eight sessions, over 60 speakers including CCEDNet members and partners, and more than 200 participants, including parliamentarians from across the political spectrum.
It was an opportunity for investment leaders and entrepreneurs across Canada:
- to showcase the power of sustainable finance in addressing key challenges faced by Canadians,
- to provide updates on significant milestones on the development of essential financial infrastructure,
- to profile the creation of new financial tools and products,
- to make parliamentarians aware of the challenges faced by practitioners, and
- to identify opportunities for the Federal Government to further support the progress of sustainable finance in Canada.
This report represents a summary of the many sessions and discussions that were had at the Sustainable Finance Forum and outlines key recommendations for consideration by parliamentarians as they work together to build the economy that meets the challenges of today and prepares us for tomorrow, a sustainable economy, one that protects our people and our planet.
