Reconciling these aspirations with market-based decision-making presents both a challenge and an opportunity. The Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for a Clean Energy Growth Economy has been conducting research and convening events on key aspects of this journey. It has identified two areas of impediment that need more dialogue among policy-makers, business leaders, and the public. Those areas are;

• Barriers to the application of technologies aimed at reducing greenhouse gases. The timely development and application of energy-efficient and
emission-lowering technologies is critical for Canada to move toward a clean-energy growth economy.
• Barriers to a supportive, sustainable finance capital market. Implementing sustainable finance will require channelling Canada’s financial sector
expertise and ingenuity to meet the challenges posed by climate change.
