Part 1: How global trends are shaping sustainable finance in Canada

While business and finance await certainty on climate-related disclosure regulations and a sustainable finance taxonomy in Canada, the rest of the world is not slowing down. Canadian companies could find themselves “playing defence” on new regulations in jurisdictions where they operate, such as the European Union's Taxonomy and disclosure requirements. Our expert panel will cover the latest global sustainable finance developments and their potential impact on Canadian firms, and what Canadian regulators and standard setters can do to set Canada’s own course for financing the economic transition to net zero emissions.
