The UK aims to cement its position as a leading green financial hub ahead of COP26. But how does the UK landscape compare globally? How effective are its policies? And what more is needed to stimulate the green economic recovery?  

Marking the launch of a new report from Cornwall Insight and TLT, this webinar brought together experts in greening finance and financing green to discuss the significant changes taking place in both the energy and financial sectors.

Panellists discussed some of the key issues raised in the report, assessing what this could mean for businesses, individuals and society as the UK aims to make green finance mainstream.

Presented by Dan Atzori, Research Partner, Cornwall Insight.
