Government announces launch of Green Finance Institute

26 Jun Government announces launch of Green Finance Institute

In his annual Mansion House speech last Thursday 21 June, the Chancellor Philip Hammond announced that the government will establish a new Green Finance Institute, co-funded with the City of London Corporation. The Institute is tasked with developing the UK’s green finance market but has an explicitly international outlook, with the aim of encouraging sustainable investment around the world to meet global climate targets.
