Announced in the UK Government’s 2019 Green Finance Strategy, and launched in June 2020, the Green Finance Education Charter (GFEC) is a world first. The Charter is designed to build the capacity and capability of the green and sustainable finance sector in the UK and internationally. The GFEC currently comprises 14 professional bodies, representing around 1 million finance professionals. Individually and collectively GFEC member bodies play critical roles in setting and embedding professional, technical and market standards and norms in UK and global finance.
"Professional bodies, and other similar institutions can play key roles in developing the capability and capacity of the banking, finance and professional services sectors to mainstream green and sustainable finance and I am proud to Chair GFEC on behalf of the 14 leading professional bodies." Simon Thompson, CEO of the Chartered Banker Institute, and current GFEC Chair.
