I’m proud to live in a country where a woman’s right to choose is so strongly supported. But the devastating decision today in the US is a clear reminder that progress should never be taken for granted.

Our commitment to protecting fundamental rights must be unwavering

Larry has been (literally) a giant of central banking. Big man, big brain and even bigger ❤️. Thank you Larry for all your service. @bankofcanada

NEW: Today #GFANZ announced our common framework to support the financial sector in a credible transition to net zero. This is essential to helping capital flow to companies w/ robust and credible plans to reduce emissions while growing jobs and economies

Thrilled to be in Singapore for the launch of #GFANZ’s Asia-Pacific network. @MikeBloomberg and I are clear: we need GFANZ in Asia and Asia at the heart of GFANZ to support investment, jobs and #NetZero action across this diverse region

A huge step towards a net zero economy was made today thanks to @EmmanuelMacron, @MikeBloomberg & Mary Schapiro who continue to bring the world together. Open and accessible #climate data is a critical next step for #GFANZ—providing accountability for the net zero transition.

Welcome the @CommonsEAC timely review of the transition of the financial system to net zero. #GFANZ will begin consulting on frameworks to underpin the financial sector transition. Looking fwd to engaging w/ the Committee to ensure the entire financial system plays its part

Our world is afflicted by a series of simultaneous shocks: climate change, war in Europe, the end of globalization as we know it.

There’s no hiding from these profound changes for us here in Canada. 1/5

Great discussion w/@Diop_IFC, @CHerweijer, @LSEGplc, Anne Richards at @WEF. We need a new financial system to fund an energy transition on the scale of the industrial revolution, at the speed of the digital transformation. #GFANZ

🌍 We’re halfway between #COP26 and #COP27. So where are we? In London, I explained that for the world to achieve its objectives, we need a sustainable revolution on the scale of the industrial revolution and at the pace of the digital transformation. 1/7

The @TPTaskforce has now launched its consultation on private sector climate transition plans. Credible and ambitious transition plans are vital for achieving Net Zero. @hmtreasury @johnglenuk

Always good to catch up with my friend, colleague and finance pioneer @hiromichimizuno #ClimateFinance

Ambitious, credible #netzero transition plans are vital to deliver the #climateaction needed to achieve net zero. #GFANZ looks forward to working closely with the UK Transition Plan Taskforce, launched today by @hmtreasury, @RishiSunak and @JohnGlenUK

The conduct of #climate policy will directly impact the efficacy of fiscal & monetary policies, and its interactions with the financial system will heavily influence the pace of job and wealth creation

The advance market commitment launched today by @stripe and partners has the potential to transform how we fund carbon removal. This is a $925M key to unlock project finance and other investment. 1/2

Today’s @IPCC_CH’s report reaffirms the urgency in limiting climate change. We must be resolute. Without accelerated investment in clean energy, more extreme weather will endanger our jobs, health & livelihoods while building problems for our kids and grandkids @UNFCCC #GFANZ 1/2

Great that @antonioguterres picked @cathmckenna to lead this crucial work so 🌎 moves forward on all levels. GFANZ will enable countries, companies and cities that catalyse NZ transitions that deliver emissions reductions, jobs and prosperity. #netzero #COP27

Investors need clear, comparable, & useful climate disclosure to manage risks & back companies that invest in job creation. That’s why the private sector-led @FSB_TCFD was launched 6 yrs ago in Paris. It’s why the world backed the @IFRSFoundation’s new #ISSB @COP26 in Glasgow 1/2

An encouraging start: >er accountability, sectoral targets, new policies (& clarity on the need for more). It will create more jobs, reduce costs for Cdns, improve our resilience & grow the competitiveness of 🇨🇦 energy & exports 👏 ⁦@s_guilbeault⁩

Today at #NABE2022 I had the honour of delivering the Volker Lecture. I set out why climate policies will heavily influence the pace of job and wealth creation, having an effect on all our lives from the stock market to the shop floor 1/9 #GFANZ
