On 12 May 2022, the UK Government published a Call for Evidence to support the development of an update to the UK’s Green Finance Strategy.

The Green Finance Strategy, which was published in July 2019, aimed to green financial systems and mobilise finance for clean and resilient growth. This Call for Evidence seeks views and evidence from stakeholders to support the Government in developing an update to the 2019 strategy so the UK can better ensure the financial services industry is supporting the UK’s energy security and its climate and environmental objectives. The updated strategy is planned for publication in late 2022.

The updated Green Finance Strategy will take stock of progress so far and sets out how the UK can better ensure the financial services industry is supporting the UK’s energy security, climate and environmental objectives.

This Call for Evidence contains 39 questions on four key objectives:

•    Capturing the opportunity of green finance

•    Mobilising finance for the UK’s energy security, climate and environmental objectives

•    Greening the financial system

•    Leading internationally

The Call for Evidence closes on 22 June 2022.
