About us


Since our inception in 2019, our pragmatic approach to channelling capital to facilitate real economy change has shaped the discourse around green finance. As an independent company with a proven track record, our credibility, capability and cross-sector engagement enable us respond to market barriers and develop solutions where others can’t.

The Green Finance Institute is an independent advisor to Government. We test, demonstrate, and scale the financial solutions needed to accelerate the transition to a net-zero and nature positive economy.

We partner with financial organisations, corporates, NGOs, policymakers, academics and civil society experts to create and scale innovative solutions that deliver practical outcomes for communities and economies. Here in the UK the GFI has helped to pioneer the use of green mortgages, local climate bonds and property linked finance.

We are staffed by financial experts who are committed to driving the action needed at the pace and scale that the science demands. Since our inception in 2019, our approach to channelling capital to facilitate real economy change has shaped the debate around green finance.
