Annual Gresham Lecture: Building Back Better – The City’s Role in a Green-Led Economic Recovery
1 February 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Lord Mayor’s Annual Gresham Lecture will focus on Building Back Better – The City’s Role in a Green-Led Economic Recovery. Speakers include the Rt. Hon The Lord Mayor William Russell, Mark Carney, the HMG COP26 Finance Advisor and UN Special Envoy, Liv Garfield, CEO of Severn Trent and Rhian-Mari Thomas OBE, CEO of the Green Finance Institute.
Solving climate change is not something that can be achieved overnight; it is a long journey, one that is complicated by the economic problems we face after Covid-19. Every industry has a role in not only helping the economy recover from the pandemic, but also ensuring that any recovery is green-led.
The City of London is a world leader in ‘Green Finance’ and has an important role in helping the country – and the world – to ‘build back better’. Through supporting sustainable infrastructure and creating green financial products, the City – and the UK’s – financial and professional services can fight climate change and, at the same time, support economic growth.
