Comments on the Expert Panel on Sustainable Finance Interim Report

To the Expert Panel on Sustainable Finance:

  • We strongly support the prioritization of “Energy Efficiency and Resiliency Retrofits” in the Interim Report.
  • We further note that improving energy efficiency can have a significant positive economic impact.
  • To realize these opportunities there is a need for federal government leadership in overcoming a number of barriers.
  • We strongly support the Interim Report’s suggestion for “centralized platform for facilitation of public/private partnerships”, and have identified some basic building blocks of a well-functioning market.
  • We wish to further emphasize that a robust energy efficiency service delivery infrastructure and ongoing federal and provincial policy initiatives provide “foundational elements” for sustainable finance.
