Canada Climate Law Initiative

The Canada Climate Law Initiative (CCLI) develops strategies to encourage meaningful governance action by directors and other fiduciaries in the transition to a net-zero carbon economy. CCLI’s flagship initiative is the Canadian Climate Governance Experts program, offering pro bono sessions to corporate and pension boards on climate-related risks and opportunities. The CCLI Knowledge Mobilization & Policy Hub at the Centre shares research on the scope of fiduciary obligation with respect to climate change.
