Conference themes

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 annual event demonstrates that green finance – and green growth – offers unprecedented opportunities for financial institutions to invest in UK natural features such as woodland, peatland and wetland.

Who participated

Financial services experts, public policy advisors, land owners and managers, environmental experts and business leaders came to the conference. Positioning their organisations at the centre of ambitions to restore the natural environment of the UK, recognising its role to underpin national wellbeing and prosperity. 

Areas discussed

  • Securing long-term revenue streams
  • Opportunities and financial models for impact investors
  • The pipeline of UK environmental restoration projects
  • Roles for government to support the market

Designed to turn discussion into action, the confernece provided a catalyst for new partnerships between financial institutions, land owners, environmental organisations and government.  It addressed 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.”
