Finance leaders driving Canada’s business transition to net zero

CEC’s development was inspired by Canada’s Expert Panel on Sustainable Finance, which in 2019 made a series of recommendations to align Canada’s financial system with a low carbon future. One of the Expert Panel’s recommendations was to establish a national engagement program, akin to Climate Action 100+, to drive a broader and more consistent dialogue with Canadian issuers around climate risks and opportunities.

SHARE is proud to be a founding partner of Climate Engagement Canada, and one of four investor networks coordinating the dissemination of the program.

Amanda Carr

Associate Director, Climate Advocacy

she/her

Amanda has worked as an international environmental consultant and managed the corporate engagement strategy for a $3.4 billion ethical investment fund. She brings two decades of experience in understanding environmental policy, regulation and business risk.  Amanda founded and established the successful CanopyStyle initiative which brings together over 520 clothing retailers and fabric producers representing over $890 billion dollars in annual revenue to build collaborative systems and tools that are safeguarding supply chains from the use of endangered forests and driving new raw material innovation.

In 2007, Amanda worked collaboratively with First Nation leaders, federal and provincial governments, forest companies, investors and philanthropic foundations to secure the largest public-private conservation financing package in global history.  This fund facilitated the protection of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest and establishing cutting-edge approaches to sustainable forestry and local human wellbeing through a conservation-based economy in the region.

Early on in her career, Amanda spent a lot of time using her environmental science degree in the field.  From being the boat driver for a team of whale researchers, swimming the Santa Cruz watershed counting salmon, to walking rice paddies to develop mitigation strategies for power distribution projects in Viet Nam these “rubber boots on the ground” experiences fuel her passion for working with business on systemic solutions for our planet.
