Thank you for contacting me about financial services and the environment.
I am strongly encouraged by the Government’s vision for the future of Britain's financial services sector shaped around four key themes, including the determination to make the UK a world-leader in green finance.
I know that my Ministerial colleagues at the Treasury are committed to ensuring that the financial system plays a major role in the delivery of the UK’s net zero target with ambitions for a ‘nature positive’ future at home and abroad.
The UK recently issued the UK’s first ever Sovereign Green Bond, becoming the first country in the world to make Taskforce on Climate-Related Disclosures mandatory by 2023. I am proud that the UK has also used its chair of the G7 to broker an agreement to move towards making climate disclosures mandatory across G7 member’s respective economies.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me about this issue.”
