CBSR Member Roundtable: Climate Transition Plans, Reporting & Transparency (Invite-only)

This members-only roundtable will bring together Canadian leaders from across industries to discuss corporate climate actions to realize net zero goals. Climate Transition Plans (CTPs) can be a driving force behind net-zero progress and are increasingly recommended in sustainability reporting, including ISSB. Speakers include Jamie Biggar & Adam Lynes-Ford from My Climate Plan, Tom Ewart from Co-operators, and Sandra Kesseler from Loblaw Companies Limited to discuss how to create an effective CTP, and more importantly, how to use it.

Your Scope 1, My Scope 3: SMEs and Financed Emissions on the Road to Net Zero

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. 

Empowering Supply Chain Decarbonization Through Industry Collaboration

We’ve all heardteamwork makes the dream work” and achieving net zero is no exception, especially when it comes to scope 3 emissions – emissions that result from assets not owned or controlled by the reporting organization, but that the organization indirectly affects in its value chain. Join the 2024 cohort of CBSR Sustainable Procurement Fellows and program alumni to learn how industry collaborations can slash GHG emissions in your supply chain. Participants in this session will explore how to sync your organization’s goals, resources and standards with industry peers, as well as how a unified approach can better influence suppliers to make the net-zero switch.
