Representing 51.9% of the Canadian gross domestic product (GDP), small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have a key role to play in the transition to a net-zero economy.  

Financial institutions (including investment managers, banks, and insurers) often see a large portion of their carbon footprint represented by scope 3 financed emissions that are associated with lending to or investing in SMEs. This session will bring together both sides of the financer/provider equation to identify collaborative decarbonizing pathways that will benefit all parties.
