In DC I met with @PauloGuedesReal, 🇧🇷’s Minister of the Economy. We discussed carbon credit markets and how country platforms could deliver $1 trillion of new private capital flows to emerging markets. Looking forward to more progress at @COP26 in Glasgow. Obrigado!

It was a real pleasure to meet w/ @KGeorgieva while in DC. We discussed how country platforms could deliver $1 trillion of new private capital flows to emerging markets by the middle of the decade. We’ll build on this at Glasgow @COP26 and beyond! #climatefinance

Great meeting w/ @DavidMalpassWBG & his team on how to turn $ billions of public capital into trillions of private investment in emerging & developing countries #GFANZ #climateaction

Great to welcome @Nomura into the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero #GFANZ with a commitment to deploy $125 billion in #sustainable financing by 2026. #ClimateAction

Great to see @Stripe expand its footprint in 🇨🇦

This will have a big impact on local entrepreneurship and Canada’s internet economy—the second-fastest growing in the world. #SmallBusiness #Toronto

The price of meeting #netzero is $100-150 trillion over 30 yrs.

The good news is the money needed is now coming into place. $90 trillion of private finance is now committed to the net zero transition through the Glasgow Alliance for Net Zero #GFANZ @COP26 1/2

Today at #ClimateWeekNYC, we launched the Net Zero Financial Service Providers Alliance. By joining the alliance and #GFANZ ahead of @COP26, companies are ensuring they are part of the solution to #climatechange 1/2

By Glasgow @COP26, the world will know which banks, asset managers and asset owners are part of the solution to climate change and which remain part of the problem. #ClimateWeekNYC #GFANZ

Great energy in #KanataCarleton last night for @JennaSudds. Jenna has been serving Kanata as a great city councillor and will be an excellent MP helping Kanata and Canada move #ForwardForEveryone

I’ll 2nd that. I’ve known @JonathanWNV for 25 yrs since he was an entrepreneur in the early days of 🇨🇦’s H industry. Now he’s helping transform our economy w/ the best #ClimateAction plan for jobs today & a sustainable tomorrow #ForwardForEveryone

My best summers growing up always included a few days In Kelowna. Now this paradise is under threat. We need #ClimateActionNow and my friend @tim_krupa will deliver. For jobs now. For our kids’ future. For the valley and #ourplanet. #ForwardForEveryone

Hugely deserved for an entrepreneur from Canada driving #Entrepreneurship globally

Today, we had the 2nd CEOs meeting of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero. With 250 firms representing $88Tn of financial assets from 30 countries, we have a lot of momentum heading into @COP26—and beyond. Many thanks to @RishiSunak, @topnigel and all participants. #GFANZ
