Building Back Better- The Annual Lord Mayor's Gresham Lecture

In his annual Gresham Lecture The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman William Russel, will be discussing the City's role as a leader in Green Finance. In the aftermath of the pandemic the Lord Mayor and guests explore the future of the City as one dedicated to climate safe practices.

Solving climate change is not something that can be achieved overnight; it is a long journey, one that is complicated by the economic problems we face after COVID-19.

Every industry has a role in not only helping the economy recover from the pandemic, but also ensuring that any recovery is green-led.

The City of London is a world leader in ‘Green Finance’ and has an important role in helping the country – and the world – to ‘build back better’. Through supporting sustainable infrastructure and creating green financial products, the City – and the UK’s – financial and professional services can fight climate change and, at the same time, support economic growth.

Join the Lord Mayor and a panel of experts, Mark Carney, Liv Garfield and Rhian-Mari Thomas, to find out more about how the City can help us transition to a sustainable and resilient future for all.
