If the UK is to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, we need to ensure more greentech and sustainability-oriented enterprises are reaching their full potential, in all its regions.

The City of London Corporation, as a global hub for innovation in financial and professional services, is committed to supporting green entrepreneurs throughout the UK by connecting them to the Square Mile’s expertise and resources.

F4SG’s initial focus is on the North East of England, identified as holding considerable untapped potential for investors in greentech and associated sectors. The City of London Corporation is working with three regional partners: the North East Local Enterprise Partnership, Northern Accelerator and Northstar Ventures.

From July 2021, a 12-month F4SG pilot will showcase the North East’s initiatives in green innovation and associated enterprises to a wider investor base. Its aim, through intensifying the region’s connections to London and its global network, is to boost the flow of green investment to the region and to reinforce the North East’s ecosystem for nurturing sustainable businesses.
