ONTARIO’S CARBON OPPORTUNITY: Learning from the Past, Building for the Future

In January 2017, the Government of Ontario is launching a cap and trade system as part of its overall strategy to reduce the province’s impact on climate change. By pricing carbon, the cap and trade system presents both opportunities and risks for Ontario’s business community. On behalf of IETA, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and CaliforniaCarbon.info, please join us for “Ontario’s Carbon Opportunity Forum”, taking place in Downtown Toronto on 13-14 October. The forum explores Ontario’s incoming compliance carbon market and related climate finance & investment opportunities. The event brings together local and global market leaders and policy experts to explore how business can comply and thrive as Ontario shifts to a low carbon economy.

Day 1 (13 October – Lunch & Afternoon Only) will see market, finance and government experts showcase the latest local and international climate finance thinking and trends, with a focus on green bank and innovative instruments to help leverage and scale private capital deployment in Ontario. Experts will also “make the links” between Ontario’s future market and green growth, investment and export opportunities. The tool-kit of new and evolving carbon asset and financial products will also be explored.

Catch Sustainable Prosperity's Director of Policy, Michelle Brownlee on the afternoon panel.
