Canada Climate Law Initiative

About the organization

The Canada Climate Law Initiative (CCLI) provides businesses and regulators with climate governance guidance so they can make informed decisions towards a net-zero economy. Powered by the nation’s top expertise, we engage with boards of directors and trustees to ensure businesses understand their legal duties with respect to climate change. Our legal research allows us to stay one step ahead in a rapidly transforming policy landscape. 


Project description

Funding will contribute to trainings for directors, officers, asset managers, and pension fiduciaries, with 70 governance experts and a focus on mid-cap companies from high-emitting sectors. They will also continue cutting-edge legal research to inform regulators, policymakers, and the private sector on climate governance practices and fiduciary obligations for climate risk disclosure.
