Building Back Better – The City’s Role in a Green-Led Economic Recovery

Solving climate change is not something that can be achieved overnight; it is a long journey, one 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.

Join the Right Honourable The Lord Mayor Alderman William Russell and a panel of experts, Mark Carney, Liv Garfield, and Rhian-Mari Thomas, at Gresham College (online) to find out more about how the City can help us transition to a sustainable and resilient future for all.

This Gresham College event will take up some of the themes of the Green Horizon Summit in November. The Lord Mayor of the City of London is the President of Gresham College, which has been running free public lectures since 1597. Z/Yen began the annual series of Lord Mayor's Gresham Events back in 2010 and has helped develop every one since. We are, naturally, delighted to be associated with this one too.
