Green finance represents a new era in financial transactions, where priority is given to projects with low emissions and a positive environmental impact. In Canada, this innovative approach plays a critical role in supporting economic activities while preserving our planet.

What is green finance?

Green finance is above all a commitment to a cleaner future. It involves investing in projects that help reduce GHG emissions and with the transition to a carbon neutral economy. Green bonds, for example, are a key instrument in this approach, making it possible to finance initiatives such as:

  1. renewable energy
  2. residual materials management

The economic benefits of green financing

Green financing opens the door to new economic opportunities. In Canada, the funds invested in green sectors stimulate innovationcreate jobs, and promote growth. Companies such as Will Solutions, pioneers in this field, establish partnerships that contribute significantly to this positive dynamic, demonstrating the standard for success in green finance.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainability

In addition to its economic impact, green finance plays a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

In the Will Solutions Sustainable Community, local businesses earn revenue from their voluntary green initiatives! The projects developed and operated each year thanks to green finance contribute to reducing corporate emissions and minimizing local environmental impacts. It’s a concrete commitment to the planet, backed up by reports and studies demonstrating the positive effects of these initiatives. Learn more about decarbonization and green finance opportunities.

Competitiveness on the international stage

Green financing also positions Canada as a leader in the fight against climate change risks. By adopting sustainable finance strategies for projects, the country strengthens its competitiveness on the international stage. This approach attracts responsible investments and strengthens Canada’s image as a centre of innovation in development and environmental protection.

In 2024, the growing demand for sustainable business practices makes green finance an option aligned with current market trends. Green finance has become a key driver in the evolution of the global economy, and Canada is no exception. This financial mechanism supports innovative projects, contributing to a stronger economy that is more respectful of the environment.

Impact on employment and local economic development

By focusing on sectors with low GHG emissions, green finance generates local jobs, thereby stimulating the Canadian economy. Initiatives such as renewable energy or residual materials recycling programs create new job opportunities, energizing local communities with the effort to transition to a greener economy.

Contribution to a greener, more sustainable economy

Green investments are crucial for the transition to a sustainable economy. They encourage the adoption of clean technology and the rational use of natural resources, thereby reducing environmental impacts. In this context, the knowledge of carbon and sustainability experts plays a pivotal role in guiding investments towards the most effective and sustainable solutions.

The challenges of green financing: realities and solutions

Although promising, green financing faces challenges, particularly in terms of mobilizing funds and measuring results. However, solutions are emerging, such as more accessible green funds and more accurate impact reporting, thereby improving the efficiency of green financing.

We unlock transparent green revenue streams based on climate science for small and medium-sized economic players. Indeed, the greenhouse gas reductions of green projects are all calculated. Finally, green financing is distributed proportionally to each project owner for their contribution to the total quantified reductions.

How does green finance help reduce GHG emissions?

Green finance helps reduce GHG emissions mainly by supporting projects and technologies that promote a significant reduction in greenhouse gases. It targets green investments in sectors such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, and sustainable resource management, all of which help to minimize the carbon footprint. In this way, green financing acts as an essential lever to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.

What is the impact of green finance on employment and local economic development?

Green financing has a positive impact on employment and local economic development by stimulating the creation of new jobs in sustainable business sectors. By investing in recycling and renewable energy projects, for example, it promotes the emergence of new industries and skills, thereby energizing the local economy. This approach also contributes to economic diversification and the resilience of communities in the face of global market changes.

How can companies benefit from green financing?

Companies can benefit from Solutions Will’s green financing by implementing green projects in their value chain. By developing these projects, organizations reduce their carbon emissions and become eligible to join the Will Solutions Sustainable Community, a group of local, virtuous companies. After qualifying, quantifying and verifying carbon reductions, companies earn green revenues each year (if they maintain the projects in question).

How can companies contribute to green financing?

Companies play a key role, particularly when it comes to launching green funds. They can take action by making sustainable investments, integrating ESG criteria into their financial decisions or adopting sustainable practices. Finally, companies can support the Sustainable Community’s portfolio of projects by purchasing carbon credits, while meeting offset targets such as carbon neutrality.

How can individuals contribute to green finance?

Individuals can contribute to green financing by investing in green funds or green bonds, which support ecological and sustainable projects. They can also opt for responsible consumption practices, such as using ethical banking services and buying products from companies committed to sustainability.

Furthermore, by making informed choices such as using renewable energy at home, individuals help increase the overall demand for green solutions, thereby encouraging more investment in this sector.
