Green Investment Bank to boost support for low carbon projects as government confirms sale to Macquarie

The UK Green Investment Bank plc (GIB) will look to invest at least £3 billion into the green economy after a deal was agreed to sell it to Macquarie Group Limited (Macquarie). Macquarie has published today a series of commitments for the future of GIB under its ownership, including:

Maintaining GIB’s green purpose and green objectives, in line with the ‘special share’ arrangements to safeguard GIB’s green purpose which will be held by five independent trustees.

Maintaining the GIB platform and brand, and to utilise the skills and experience of GIB employees in Edinburgh and London

GIB’s Edinburgh office will be home to a new revenue generating project delivery business providing services to the green energy portfolios of GIB and Macquarie in the UK
