The Montréal Climate Summit is the annual gathering of the Montréal community for the climate transition.

It is a milestone event where public authorities and society’s key stakeholders highlight solutions, measure collective progress and share successes and challenges in their work to speed up the city’s climate transition.

Each year, the Summit invites leaders from the business, philanthropic, political, union, grassroots and environmental communities, as well as students and citizens of every stripe, to gather and rally around concrete measures. It’s also the premier platform for making announcements and commitments to doing more, better and faster for the climate.

The Summit’s funding partners are listed here.
