In this episode of our pre-election policy in practice podcasts, David Gauke and Rachel Richardson discuss ESG policies outlined in the Labour and Conservative manifestos.

They cover:

  • the proposed climate policies;
  • green finance initiatives;
  • Labour's proposed solutions to make the UK more attractive for private capital, including a National Wealth Fund and the Energy Independence Act; and 
  • Labour's broader environmental strategy involving an emphasis on sustainable farming practices and national biodiversity improvements.

If you would like more information or want to discuss any of the topics in this podcast, please get in touch with David and Rachel.
