The Toronto Sustainability Summit will highlight the global leadership of the University of Toronto in areas of Sustainability and Cleantech and focus on the University's efforts to collaborate and partner with surrounding governments, industry, investors and the community.

The summit will bring together individuals from various sectors and backgrounds, such as policy makers, academics, business leaders and entrepreneurs, to exchange ideas with government on ways to inform and shape public opinion and public policy to meet the challenges of climate change; to enhance industry research partnerships with the aim of building a less carbon intensive society, reducing greenhouse gases and moving towards clean energy; and to encourage and foster sustainable start-up companies developed from research at the University that can have an impact on this global issue.
