About this session

  • Canada’s resource intensive economy will require creative thinking to transition its human and economic capital to green: how can a large country do that?
  • Assessing the similar big ‘S’ risks, such as human and labour rights: can we really talk about investment ‘materiality’ here, or do new business models and recalcitrant countries just ride roughshod over any financial implications?


  • Paul Finch, Treasurer and Chief Financial and Administrative Officer, BC Government Employees Union (BCGEU)
  • Tom Tayler, Senior Manager, Aviva Investors Sustainable Finance Centre for Excellence and UN High Level Climate Champions Finance Team
  • Rosa van den Beemt, Vice President, Responsible Investment Analyst, BMO Global Asset Management
