Published a new ‘Green finance: a quantitative assessment of market trends’ report, in partnership with BNP Paribas and with data provided by Refinitiv, highlighting that the UK is well placed to take advantage of the opportunities presented by green finance. As well as quantifying global green finance over the last decade, the analysis showed that although green finance remains a relatively small part of global financial markets, it is a segment which has shown consistent growth, with clear signs of acceleration in recent years.
Set out clear policy asks to enable green and transition financing opportunities to scale up in our responses to HMG’s update to its Green Finance Strategy; HMG’s Transition Plan Taskforce on a Sector Neutral Framework for Transition Plans; and the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee on the financial sector and the UK’s transition to net zero.
Prioritised showcasing the industry’s enabling role in supporting the transition to net zero and best practice examples at our successful COP26 event, delivered alongside the Green Finance Institute and City of London Corporation. We also joined a panel hosted by the City of London Corporation at Mansion House to discuss the ‘Green Global Playbook’ being developed as a result of COP26 and how our industry can contribute.
