What We Do

Convene, Champion, Connect

To open up opportunities for Canada’s cleantech innovators, we convene the Canadian cleantech ecosystem on a regular basis to share knowledge and crowdsource policy recommendations. Our recommendations address barriers to cleantech innovation and adoption. Apart from engaging with the cleantech ecosystem to effectively advocate on behalf of Canada’s cleantech sector, we also connect cleantech solution providers with buyers and investors.
