The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 2018 report shows that without significant action over the next 12 years, we are facing dire long-term consequences due to climate change. It is universally accepted that finance plays a critical role in achieving the transition to a clean economy, and that it will require significant collaboration of academics, educators and private sector representatives.

The Canadian Sustainable Finance Network (CSFN) joint with the Institute for Sustainable Finance at Smith School of Business, Queen’s University are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Canadian Sustainable Finance Network (CSFN) Conference, to be held in Toronto on October 23-24, 2020.

The conference will bring together academics from the CSFN, other like-minded academics, and financial industry participants to discuss the latest innovations in sustainable finance research and education. The conference presents an opportunity to discuss both current and challenging issues related to sustainable finance development in Canada. Ultimately, the goal of the conference is to serve as a platform for discussions that will support the transition of Canada’s financial system to one in which sustainable growth is engrained in everyday policy decisions and business practices.

Thank you for your interest in registering for the 1st Annual Conference of the Canadian Sustainable Finance Network.

Due to growing concerns about COVID-19 in Canada, the Canadian Sustainable Finance Network has postponed the conference until October 23-24, 2020. A new Call for Papers will be posted in the Summer of 2020. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact
