Creating a supportive environment for innovative companies throughout the UK, helping them source scale-up finance as they develop and commercialise green and sustainable solutions.

Finance For Sustainable Growth

The broader objective of  F4SG, an initiative of the City of London Corporation, is to ensure that the entire UK benefits from London-based expertise and sources of capital as it levels up across regions and works towards net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

F4SG’s initial focus is on the North East of England, identified as holding considerable untapped potential for investors in greentech and associated sectors.

From July 2021 a 12-month F4SG pilot  is being run in partnership with the North East Local Enterprise Partnership, Northern Accelerator and Northstar Ventures. Showcasing the North East’s green enterprise to a wider investor base, and intensifying connections to London and its global network, it aims to boost the flow of green investment to the region and to reinforce its ecosystem for nurturing sustainable businesses.
