About The Event

Sustainable finance is front and center in banking, industry investments, and government regulations.

Join us for a panel discussion and idea-filled conversation about how personal and corporate investments can be made with sustainability, Indigenous reconciliation, or ESG in mind.

We'll get you up to speed on the basics of:

  • Sustainability-linked loans and green bonds: how are financial institutions supporting change?
  • Federal policies and regulations: how does government policy drive action (or not)?
  • Green and Transition Finance Taxonomy: do words really matter?
  • Personal investment strategies: what impact can we make at a personal level?

Whether you're looking to get up to speed on the landscape of sustainable finance, learn new terminology, or update your own portfolio - this is the event for you!
