UKSIF & Impact Investing Institute response: Labour Party National Policy Forum Commission consultation
We were pleased to collaborate with the Impact Investing Institute (III) over a joint consultation response to the Labour Party National Policy Forum Commission consultation on ‘A green and digital future – Delivering growth’. Labour’s National Policy Forum (NPF) plays an important role in developing and shaping the party’s policy programme, including drawing up policy documents for agreement by the party.
In our response, we welcome Labour’s commitment to growth, including its pledge to spend £28 billion a year until 2030 to tackle the climate crisis, while delivering secure, green jobs and supporting the most vulnerable. We recognise Labour’s renewed focus on working with businesses, large and small, as well as the financial services sector, to improve productivity, increase living standards and spread growth more equitably across the UK. We provides details on various recommendations for how a Labour government could maximise the potential of the capital markets in promoting a more sustainable financial system and wider economy.Read More
