Scotiabank is accepting grant submissions for its Net-Zero Research Fund. The fund was established in 2021 as part of the bank’s Climate Commitments. Not-for-profit and charitable organisations developing research and opportunities to decarbonise have until end May to submit proposals for funding.

“Climate change continues to be a major priority for Scotiabank. We are contributing to the development of sustainable options that help to advance a low-carbon economy,” said Meigan Terry, SVP and Chief Social Impact, Sustainability and Communications Officer at Scotiabank.

“Scotiabank’s Net-Zero Research Fund invests in innovative research for climate adaptation. This helps to foster the collaboration and knowledge sharing that builds vital connections between non-profit research institutes and the corporate sector which is critical to the transition to a net-zero future.”

Projects are supported in Canada, the US, Latin America and the Caribbean and include:
