Join us on Tuesday 22 June 9.30am-11am for the launch of our latest report on green finance, developed in collaboration with the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP) along with our cross-economy business and civil society members.

This event will launch the Aldersgate Group’s new report, Financing the future: Driving investment for net zero emissions and nature restoration, which explores the critical role of green finance in delivering the UK’s net zero and nature restoration targets, levelling up agenda, and economic recovery.
 
The report examines the policies and mechanisms needed to ensure the whole financial system is working towards delivering these goals, and makes recommendations for accelerating and lowering the cost of private investment into low carbon infrastructure and nature-based solutions. It also explores the UK’s role in delivering the green and climate finance required on the international stage, now that the UK has left the European Union and ahead of COP26.
 
Following a keynote speech from a high profile political speaker, a multi-sector business panel will debate key priorities and next steps for the government, financial institutions, and regulators to ensure the UK remains a global leader on green finance at COP26 and beyond.

  • Nick Molho, Executive Director, Aldersgate Group
