What is the issue?
  • The UK Government issued a new Green Finance Strategy on 30 March 2023, setting out a revised approach from the previous iteration in 2019. This follows a consultation in the summer of 2022.
  • The strategy sets out the Government’s plans to be the world’s first Net Zero-aligned financial centre, and proposals for a supporting regulatory and disclosure framework that includes plans to implement a UK Green Taxonomy, introduce mandatory transition plan disclosures, and implement the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) standards.
  • Alongside this paper, the Government published other documents, including a ‘Powering Up Britain’ strategy, a Nature Markets Framework, an International Climate Finance Strategy, UK Strategic Framework on Climate and Nature, and a consultation on the regulation of ESG ratings providers.
