Announcing a Just Transition Finance Challenge

Financing a fair and inclusive transition to Net Zero

What is the Just Transition Finance Challenge?

The Just Transition Finance Challenge is a flagship initiative to mobilise more public and private capital into investments that support a Just Transition to Net Zero in the UK and other developed and emerging markets.

Launched by the Impact Investing Institute, with the support of the City of London Corporation, it brings together leading global financial institutions with over £3.6tn of assets and assets under management, including public and private asset owners, asset managers, development finance institutions and advisors, who are committed to financing a Just Transition.

This session presented a new coalition of key investors committed to mobilising capital towards impact investing and ensuring that the investment for a transition to Net Zero is inclusive and socially beneficial.

Moderated by Laurie Spengler, CEO of Courageous Capital Advisors and Senior Advisor for G7 Impact Taskforce, the panel consisted of Sharon Johnson, Chief Operating Officer, AgilityEco; Maria Nazarova-Doyle, Head of Pensions Investments and Responsible Investment, Scottish Widows; and Anne-Marie Chidzero, Chief Investment Officer, FSD Africa Investments.
