Since 2021, Scotiabank's Net-Zero Research Fund has distributed CAD$3 million to more than 30 registered charities and non-profit organizations conducting climate and decarbonization research. In 2023 for example, the University of Alberta received a grant to develop a net-zero vision and find transition pathways for Canada's steel sector.

Other projects that have received grants from the fund include:

  • Expanding carbon sequestration
  • Developing improvements to greenhouse gas emissions measurements
  • Identifying policy and regulatory changes to enable rapid decarbonization
  • Increasing demand for lower or zero-carbon technologies

Scotiabank's grants in 2024 will range from CAD $25,000 to CAD $100,000. Organizations must be registered charities and non-profit organizations to be eligible for the Scotiabank Net-Zero Research Fund.
