Join us on Wednesday, May 10 at 11:30 a.m. for the first talk at the Chamber by Grégoire Baillargeon, President, BMO Financial Group, Quebec.
The most recent IPCC report is clear: the transition to a net zero world is not happening fast enough. However, the same report notes that we have the technology and capital to successfully limit global warming to the 1.5°C target established under the Paris Agreement.
The leadership of the financial sector is essential to accelerate the reduction of the economy’s carbon footprint, both locally and internationally. During his talk, Grégoire Baillargeon will share his vision on the role to be played by the main economic players in the face of this existential challenge. Based on BMO’s actions, he will explain how the financial sector’s leadership and actions can and should be organized in the fight against climate change.
