Green Finance Strategy

THURSDAY 17 OCTOBER 2019

One Great George Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3AA

Plenary II

11:30-12:45

/Financing Green

A strategy to green the financial system as a whole needs to be combined with specific actions to mobilise and accelerate flows of private finance into key clean growth and environmental sectors at home and abroad. The UK has leading, long-term and legal policy frameworks, most notably the UK’s Climate Change Act, which was the first of its kind, and plans to place the 25 Year Environment Plan on a statutory footing. These help provide the long-term certainty we know investors need and the foundation on which we are financing our clean growth ambitions. This session will examine how we can further develop policy frameworks to motivate investment at the scale required to solve local and global environmental challenges, as well as how we can address market failures that prevent the efficient and effective financing and re-financing of green investments.

Panellists:

Chair: Tim Lord, Director, Clean Growth, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Emma Howard Boyd, Chair, Environment Agency

Dr Rhian-Mari Thomas OBE, CEO, Green Finance Institute

Nick Mabey, CEO, E3G
