About This Webinar

Is Canada’s green taxonomy seeking to protect the fossil fuel sector from the reality of a global energy transition or will it be instrumental in achieving climate targets across the economy?

Is the delay in implementing a robust sustainable finance taxonomy in Canada and the EU holding back sustainable investment or are investment decisions already being made based on the draft taxonomies?

How does Canada’s green taxonomy align with other efforts such as those of the EU and the International Standards Organization, and why should investors be paying attention?
