Discover International Market Opportunities through The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) and the Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). 
Are you interested in expanding into the emerging markets?
Do you have expertise in the development, transfer and/or deployment of climate technologies (including policy and capacity building) in developing countries?

The UN’s Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) provides climate advice and expertise to enable the transfer of technologies to developing countries at their request – and provides opportunities for members to bid on commercial opportunities and share intelligence with a global network.
The Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) is a global initiative uniting governments, civil society and private sector to improve air quality and protect the climate in next few decades by reducing short-lived climate pollutants (e.g. methane, black carbon ) across sectors (agriculture, waste management, oil and gas, brickyards, etc.).
The University of Toronto, School of the Environment’s Environmental Finance Advisory Committee is pleased to collaborate with our partners to present a session on how to Discover International Market Opportunities through the CTCN and the CCAC.
Learn how CTCN membership could benefit your organization, open new export markets and accelerate deployment of climate technologies to developing countries. Learn about the Canadian government’s work with the CCAC and opportunities for Canadian companies.
