2023 Montréal Climate Summit

2023 Montréal Climate Summit

The 2nd Montréal Climate Summit will take place on May 9 and 10, 2023, at the Grand Quay of the Port of Montreal. The goal of this significant annual event is to help the city of Montréal pick up the pace on climate change action by 2030. It will also be an opportunity to look back on the progress made since the last summit.

The first summit drew tremendous interest from civil society, and the second one will be even more ambitious, with a program constructed together with 20 key partners. Major new commitments will be made at the summit that will shape the future of the city. Hundreds of participants and dozens of panellists will come together to find potential solutions and ways to:

  • Accelerate building and transportation decarbonization
  • Transition to an equitable sustainable mobility
  • Give the business and finance community a bigger role in fighting climate change
  • Use the fight against climate change, including adaptation efforts, as a means to reduce inequality
  • Further integrate the philanthropic and health sectors into the city’s climate efforts
