We work with investors to hold Canadian publicly-traded companies accountable to their net zero promises.
We represent investors or take financial positions in select Canadian companies ourselves. We do a deep dive analysis of their net zero plans.
We engage those companies and other investors to improve accountability, including filing shareholder resolutions where appropriate.
We believe that a just transition to the net zero economy can unlock shareholder value while giving our kids a better future.

The Trinity Centres Foundation is a new Canadian charity; its aim is to see 100 historic church buildings converted into community hubs for the charitable and community sectors.
Our model is to partner with the owners of historic church buildings to provide project development and building management which retains ongoing worship space usage on Sundays. Various government and charitable partners are then invited to be part of a new “community hub” concept, attractive to new categories of impact lending. Heritage buildings will first be made safe and usable and later sensitively developed to a modern, world-class standard also suitable for conference, event, concert and wedding activities that will lead to local centres becoming financially self-sustainable.
The Foundation’s Board of Advisors is a team of 50 professionals from across the social innovation, urban planning, property, finance, management, accounting, legal, government and faith sectors.
