We pride ourselves on developing innovative solutions and can advise on unique strategies gaining traction globally, such as sustainability-linked debt products, ESG, carbon credits and impact investing structures. These types of arrangements have been driving new capital investments into the market to support the cost of sustainable economic recovery, which the International Energy Agency currently projects to be $1 trillion a year in the next three years globally. Not only is the demand great in the UK, big investment houses in the U.S. are jumping on board, and the pandemic is spurring on the trend.
