The UK Government announced in the Green Finance Roadmap its intention to create a world-leading net zero financial system. However, an important part of delivering this sustainable system lies in how the government supports private finance in going green.
London is one of the world’s leading financial centres, but in order to maintain this position, it will need to innovate and reflect a changing world.

E3G’s latest briefing establishes exactly what is a net zero financial centre, and outlines a suggested timeline for the sub sectors of the UK finance sector to transition to net zero.
