Canada aspires to move to a clean energy growth economy. If we’re going to achieve that goal, we need to address the barriers—and soon.
The Sustainable Finance | Clean Energy Conference will tackle two major obstacles to a clean energy growth economy: technology and sustainable finance.
The energy sector plays a critical role in our economy, and will be essential to propelling Canada into a clean growth economic future that addresses climate change, greenhouse gas emissions, and resilience without sacrificing economic growth, wealth creation, the environment, or social well-being.
Industries, organizations, and policy-makers must reconcile those aspirations with market-based decision-making. To do so, they need to understand the potential barriers to creating a clean growth economic future.
The Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for a Clean Energy Growth Economy conducts research and hosts events that bring together and build consensus between diverse funders to develop a road map for the Canadian economy as we move toward a clean growth future. Our research has identified two obstacles that require more dialogue among policy-makers, business leaders, and the public:
At the Sustainable Finance | Clean Energy Conference we’ll tackle these barriers and develop action plans. Join us as we hear from researchers and cross-industry change-makers, confront the issues, and determine what must happen in order to move the needle.
After the event, the Conference Board will publish a briefing document summarizing conference discussions and outlining the next steps for Canada to move toward a clean growth economy. Every one who registers will have access through our website to a free copy of the briefing.
By attending the Sustainable Finance | Clean Energy Conference, you will be part of that discussion and have your voice and ideas reflected in the briefing. Help Canada achieve its clean growth aspirations by taking part in Sustainable Finance | Clean Energy Conference.sponsor packages
