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.
