Laura Zizzo BES, JD
Founder and CEO, Zizzo Strategy Inc.
Founder of the first law firm in Canada to deal exclusively with issues related to climate change, Laura has long been an expert advisor in climate related risk. In 2015, she shifted focus away from the law, founding Zizzo Strategy to help clients identify climate risks, opportunities and adaptation strategies. Her clients range from the YMCA to large financial institutions to municipalities and provincial governments. A notable NRCan-sponsored project considered climate readiness of Canadian electricity providers, another looked at climate disclosures of public companies. Along the way, she has developed courses for engineers and corporate leaders on the subject.
