Climate Aligned Finance – by Julie Segal & Alex Walker

By Scott McKinlay

We were very pleased to welcome Julie Segal, Senior Manager, Climate Finance at Environmental Defence Canada, and Alex Walker, Program Manager, Climate Finance at Environmental Defence Canada as they helped us to understand and support financial regulation as a vital climate solution. 

Among other things, Julie and Alex touched on Bill S-243 – the Climate-Aligned Finance Act, which was introduced by Senator Rosa Galvez.  The goal of the bill is to bring Canada’s financial sector in line with climate science, mitigate growing risks to our financial system,  start pushing for an orderly transition to a low-carbon economy, and legislate respect for Indigenous rights.
