Update to Green Finance Strategy: call for evidence

June 2022

Expanding data disclosures and improving comparability of metrics were key themes of the APPG’s April report. This submission to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s Green Finance Strategy call for evidence is principally concerned with these two priorities. The content of the submission was guided by the April report, together with input from members of the APPG’s advisory board, who provided a series of illustrative examples and practical guidance, notably with regard to SMEs, on how to meet the Government’s green finance ambitions.
