The TD-Bloomberg Sustainability Dialogues Shine a Spotlight on the Business Case for a Low-carbon Economy

Campaign: Low-Carbon Economy

Today, a main topic of discussion for many businesses is what it will take for society to transition to a low-carbon economy – and what role business can play. To shine a spotlight on this question, Bloomberg BNA released a report that captures the insights and different perspectives that were shared at the Bloomberg Sustainable Business Summit in Toronto this past September.

The report is part of the TD-Bloomberg Sustainability Dialogues, which kicked off in 2017 as a two-year thought leadership series between TD Bank Group and Bloomberg BNA. The program will be bringing together experts from industry, government and civil society to share their perspectives on sustainable business as Canada works to meet its commitment under the 2015 Paris Agreement by 2030. 

Highlights from the paper include:

  • The need to invest in sustainable and innovative infrastructure
  • The transition to a low-emissions energy system and the role of traditional fossil fuels
  • Support for green transportation, both private and public
  • How government can help facilitate change through public policy

This white paper is the first of six papers as part of the TD-Bloomberg Sustainability Dialogue Series.
