  • UK has established a new Green Technical Advisory Group

    HM Treasury has announced a new independent group, called the Green Technical Advisory Group, to help tackle “greenwashing” and create a U.K. green taxonomy. “Greenwashing” refers to unsubstantiated or exaggerated claims that an investment is environmentally friendly. GTAG’s main remit is to advise HM Treasury on developing and implementing a U.K. green taxonomy, comprising technical screening criteria. GTAG consists of financial services industry representatives, non-financial services representatives, taxonomy and climate experts. HM Treasury, the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority and the Bank of England will be observers. GTAG is expected to provide initial recommendations to HM Treasury as early as September of this year.
