Financing Resilience: The leading forum to advance investment in the UK's natural environment
Register your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
This innovative environmental finance conference is leading the movement to make the UK a leader in investment in the natural environment on the basis of its economic value.
A restored natural environment can play a big part in resilience against flooding, water shortage and summer heat episodes. It is central to climate change adaptation. This key event will demonstrate that green finance – and green growth – offers unprecedented opportunities for financial institutions to invest in UK natural features such as woodland, peatland and wetland.
Purpose of the conference
The event will address the challenge laid down by the Green Finance Task Force in March 2018 that “increased private sector investment into protecting and enhancing natural capital will also be crucial to improving our resilience.” Designed to turn discussion into action, the forum will catalyse new partnerships between financial institutions, land owners, environmental organisations and government.
Areas for discussion
- Opportunities and financial models for impact investors
- The pipeline of UK environmental restoration projects
- Roles for government to support the market
Who should attend
This is the only event to bring professionals together in environment, finance and public policy in equal balance. Financiers, policymakers, land owners and managers, environmentalists and business executives who are active or interested in these fields will find the conference invaluable.
The 2018 Conference
The first Natural Capital Investment Conference in 2018 attracted over 200 professionals from environmental finance and conservation in the UK. It was opened by Rt Hon Lord Deben and was addressed by luminaries such as Tushita Ranchan (green infrastructure investor), Bevis Watts (Triodos Bank UK), Shirley Trundle OBE (Defra) and Tony Juniper OBE (WWF). Media partner was ENDS Report.
Feedback from 2018
"very well put together, interesting, inspiring and thought provoking."
"good to see how natural capital investment is progressing, both from an investor's point of view and those working on the ground."
