FIA EPTA members welcome the actions and responsibilities taken by the UK Government during COP26 in Glasgow and the work toward the common goals of reaching climate neutrality in 2050. FIA EPTA is committed to supporting policymakers and regulators in ensuring the success of the sustainable finance project at all levels of the capital market ecosystem. With a balanced approach, FIA EPTA members believe it will benefit the long-term stability and attractiveness of the UK capital markets.
FIA EPTA members believe that a well-designed sustainable capital market infrastructure will benefit the growth and attractiveness of the UK in this space and will support the transition towards net-zero. This will attract other businesses and innovators to the UK to benefit from the ESG hub the UK could become. FIA EPTA members believe the UK Government should further develop the secondary markets and improve the underlying data in ESG products so that the UK will remain a global centre for green finance.
