Scottish Taskforce for Green and Sustainable Financial Services | Full Q&A

We were delighted to be joined by Un Special Envoy for Climate and the Economy, Mark Carney, Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Economy at the Scottish Government Kate Forbes, Economic Secretary to the Treasury John Glen, David Pitt-Watson and Dame Susan Rice for the launch of the Scottish Taskforce for Green and Sustainable Financial Services on Monday 28th February.

The Taskforce, launched by The Scottish Government with GEFI acting as secretariat, presents a unique opportunity for Scotland’s financial services sector to build on the legacy of COP26 by working together to demonstrate global leadership in implementing the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) roadmaps.

The Taskforce will help to capitalise on the opportunities of financing the global shift to net zero, setting out the actions we will take to promote and establish Scotland as a world leading centre for green and ethical finance. The group will report to the First Minister’s Financial Services Growth and Development Board and leverage off GEFI’s extensive global advocacy programmes.
