As leaders in accounting, strategy, consulting and technology, EY provides a broad range of support for businesses while pursuing their goal of, “building a better working world”. With a strong presence in the cleantech sector and a long history of championing Canadian entrepreneurs, EY plays a critical role in supporting innovation across the country.

That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with EY — an established and inspiring supporter of Canadian entrepreneurship — to help more Canadian cleantech ventures launch and commercialize their climate solutions.” – Jeanette Jackson, CEO of Foresight Canada
In addition to supporting Foresight’s programs, EY will lend their expertise in sustainability and environment, social, and governance (ESG) services. Their teams have a legacy of over 20 years in providing sustainability and ESG support, using their deep technical skills across a breadth of business issues to support businesses as they create value for sustainability, while creating value for business. Their focus on strategy, accelerating transitions, governance and sustainable operations, and trust building is a recipe for success in the green economy. Foresight and EY are well positioned to lead the next generation of cleantech entrepreneurs, and to support Canada’s net zero climate targets.
“Value-led sustainability is everybody’s business. Embracing societal change and sustainable development early on in their journey will place cleantech innovators on the road to long-term success — and we are excited to play a role in that journey.
