Overview

The UK Government’s Net Zero Strategy (October 2021) highlighted the crucial role local government plays in achieving national net zero ambitions. It estimated that 82% of all UK emissions are within the scope of influence of local authorities. Yet funding constraints mean that UK councils are struggling to finance and deliver their net zero transition plans. Green finance solutions can play a vital role in helping close this funding gap and in enabling local authorities to turn their climate ambitions into actionable outputs. What is green finance, what options are available and how can local authorities better access private investment and funding to support climate goals?

The House Briefing Green Finance: Funding the transition towards net zero taking place online on 29 September 2022 will explore how councils can access and utilise green finance to meet local priorities to enable place-based transition to net zero.

Hear first-hand from Government, policy experts and leaders in industry who will share their insight and offer practical guidance to help mobilise public and private finance into locally directed investments to achieve net zero objectives.

A panel of experts will discuss the different types of financial solutions available to local authorities, explaining the pathway to securing funding and exploring the risks and implications of the various options. How do local authorities find out about emerging markets? What skills and resources are needed to develop commercially viable investment propositions and attract potential investors? How can collaboration help drive private capital towards investing into place-based, low carbon investments?
