Channelling global finance
into local solutions

We are shocked and deeply saddened by the death of our Chairman, Sir Roger Gifford, who died from myeloma on 25 May. Sir Roger was instrumental in establishing the Green Finance Institute and stewarding our success over the last two years. His contribution to the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss, and advancing green finance in the UK was enormous. He has left an indelible mark on the industry and on all of us.

Our thoughts are with Sir Roger’s family during this difficult time. He will be remembered with great fondness and be deeply missed by the whole team.

“Considerable investment is required to catalyse the transition of the global economy towards a more sustainable future. It is critical that financial market participants and policymakers collaborate to co-create the solutions.”
