Scotiabank Net Zero Research Fund

As part of its continued efforts to combat climate change, Scotiabank has established a Net Zero Research Fund (NZRF) to initiate partnerships with leading think-tanks and academic institutions that are supporting key sectors in their efforts to decarbonize. The CAD $1,000,000 fund will advance research and leadership in support of global decarbonization efforts. 

To further the understanding of pathways to a net zero global economy, Scotiabank has established the NZRF to:

• Stimulate research, dialogue and understanding of the shift to a net zero emissions global economy by 2050 or sooner in order to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement

• Identify initiatives that require investment to accelerate adoption or scale of application

• Strengthen relationships between academic and non-profit research institutes and the corporate sector through collaboration and knowledge sharing

• Continue to inform the Bank’s climate change strategy and views on the transition to a net zero global economy

Eligibility: To be eligible for funding through the Scotiabank NZRF, partner organizations must be registered not-for-profit or charitiable organizations in their jurisdiction. 

Amount: Scotiabank will award grants from a minimum of $25,000 CAD up to a maximum of $100,000 CAD through this 2021 call for applicants. Any funds not granted through this process will be awarded through a second call for proposals expected in April 2022. 

Deadline: Both full and summary applications must be completed and submitted for review to NetZeroResearchFund@scotiabank.com by Friday July 2, 2021 at 11:59 pm EST.
