Summary Critique of the Legislation Establishing the Green Investment Bank

ClientEarth is at the forefront of the campaign for a transformational Green Investment Bank (GIB) in the UK. This will be a world first dedicated green bank. During 2010 and 2011 we worked closely with Transform UK to demonstrate why it was necessary for the GIB to be established by legislation in order to meet its climate targets. The Government was eventually persuaded of that view and the legislation has now been revealed.  ClientEarth is working closely with Transform UK and MPs, designing and recommending amendments to ensure the GIB is a real bank, that its activities are truly green, and that it upholds the highest standards of accountability and transparency.
