The PRI, the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF) and the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) held an event on UK Sustainable Finance Policy with our organisations’ members, policy officials, and investment industry stakeholders. This provided an opportunity to discuss, network and collaborate on the suite of policy developments outlined in the publications released on 30 March.

The 60 attendees included policymakers, investors and financial institutions representatives and lawyers. We would like to particularly thank the policymakers that gave presentations.

We had open and lively conversations about the opportunities and challenges of achieving a sustainable financial system and the UK’s Net Zero targets.

The main topics discussed were:

  • the UK as a Net Zero-aligned Financial Centre and the UK’s options for green growth support;
  • the role of fiduciary duty in addressing systemic risks and outcomes; and
  • transition finance and decarbonisation of the real economy.

This document presents a summary of points raised throughout the event. The views presented in this summary do not represent the positions of the PRI, UKSIF and IIGCC.
