UK Government Green Financing Framework

An independent framework from the EU to try to establish the UK as a global climate and environmental leader.

  • This Framework describes how the UK Government plans to finance expenditures through the issuance of green gilts and the retail Green Savings Bonds that will be critical in tackling climate change and other environmental challenges, funding much-needed infrastructure investment, and creating green jobs across the UK.

  • It sets out the basis for identification, selection, verification and reporting of the green projects that are eligible for financing from the proceeds of the UK Government’s green gilt programme and the retail Green Savings Bonds. The Framework aligns with the 2021 International Capital Market Association (ICMA) Green Bond Principles.
