Sustainability

We influence the policy environment and evolution of regulatory frameworks to ensure the UK is positioned at the forefront of green and sustainable finance.

“The financial services industry [should look to] support the economy, businesses and the people of this country as we get back on our feet from the effects of Covid and transform the economy to support climate change. Fortunately, I know from many conversations that TheCityUK are up for the challenge.” Andrew Bailey, Governor of the Bank of England

Sustainability is a significant agenda for firms across the financial and related professional services ecosystem and cuts across all of our work. We support this by:

  • developing policy positions in relation to green and sustainable finance issues and governance
  • addressing the future shape of the UK’s regulatory, legal and tax regimes and the approach of its regulatory and supervisory authorities to the development of the UK becoming a net zero aligned financial centre
  • providing an evidence base on the UK’s role as a leading net zero aligned financial centre
  • informing bilateral and global market engagement on green and sustainable finance and the broad ESG agenda.
