GRI Webinar – Sustainable Finance and Climate Risk Series: Transition Risk and the Road to Net Zero

March 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Please join us as we hear from James Meadowcroft, Canada Research Chair in Governance for Sustainable Development, Research Director at the Transition Accelerator and Professor at Carleton University, and Peter van Dijk, GRI Executive in Residence, as they discuss Canada's opportunity to be a global leader in getting to net zero.

James will summarize the emerging big picture net zero pathways for key industries, including energy, agriculture, transport and infrastructure. Peter will explore the fiscal measures like grants, tax incentives and subsidies the government may use to get these industries onto a low carbon trajectory.

We hope that you can join us for this timely and topical discussion.
