Driving real economy change for a net zero and nature positive future

The size and urgency of the climate crisis means financial commitments must now become real investments.

Leveraging its unique mandate from governments and its financial market expertise, the Green Finance Institute (GFI) is a global organisation that bridges the gap between committed capital and implementation by designing and scaling green financial markets for tomorrow.

By establishing the enabling policy, and regulatory and risk conditions for investment, we are able to build new institutional capability to drive the adoption of scalable sectoral solutions, crowding in the investment required to deliver net zero and nature positive outcomes.

Beginning in the UK, we are now leveraging the GFI’s unique capability and proven methodology to create investible markets that facilitate the supply of capital across the globe.

"The objectives of the Paris Agreement cannot be met without nature. It remains undervalued and underutilized as a climate mitigation and adaptation solution. (The Risk Quantification Report) This important contribution from the Green Finance Institute underscores the need to address nature-related risks and opportunities. Businesses and financial institutions now have the tools they need to take action and re-direct capital towards a net-zero and nature-positive economy."

“The Green Home Finance Principles provided a framework that we used to create and launch our Green Mortgage. The Principles allowed us to demonstrate the way we would make a difference to carbon emissions from housing rather than just talking about it and we will continue to use them when developing our Green Mortgage range.”

“The Local Climate Bond was an exciting way to engage with our residents and show our commitment to becoming net zero. As the first in the country to choose this as a cheaper form of borrowing to fund important green projects, we had no idea how it would be received, but the response was fantastic and we reached our target ahead of time. We are still reaping the benefits as investors continue to donate their interest to help finance further projects such as our popular wildflower verges, which is testament to how firmly people are engaged. Our work with the Green Finance Institute and Abundance Investment on the Local Climate Bond Campaign continues to drive growth and innovation in this market, and we’re pleased to be able to with.”
