Co-operators is a leading Canadian financial services co-operative, offering multi-line insurance and investment products, services, and personalized advice that drive toward our purpose – Financial security for Canadians and our communities. We bring our vision to be a catalyst for a resilient and sustainable society to life through our products and services, community partnerships, and investments. In 2022, we had invested nearly 24% of our total portfolio – $2.69 billion – into impact investments that measurably address the world’s pressing environmental and social issues. By 2030, 60% of our invested assets will be directed to impact investments or climate transition and resilience investments. These investments will help move Canada towards its net zero targets and build climate resilient communities from coast to coast to coast. As a carbon neutral organization, Co-operators is also committed to achieving net zero emissions in its operations and investments by 2040, and 2050, respectively.

We know Canada must take bold action today to improve our resiliency in the face of climate change — which is already upon us and is sadly poised to worsen. We’re proud to work in partnership with ICLEI to assemble the kind of creative, imaginative and committed multistakeholder collaboration we need. Through the Livable Cities Forum, we can help bring a whole-of-society approach to life, where communities, residents, asset owners, governments and investors work together to build a more resilient future.
