Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Rishi Sunak says ‘UK to become world’s first net zero aligned financial centre’ at Cop26” – below is their description.

The Chancellor arrived in Glasgow with former Bank of England governor Mark Carney ahead of a speech to delegates this morning. He unveiled plans to force hundreds of Britain’s biggest firms to go green to tackle climate change , with wide-ranging proposals to ‘rewire’ the economy towards reducing global warming. The package will see trillions of pounds of assets controlled by the City of London redirected away from carbon-intensive sectors like coal and oil towards initiatives such as electric car batteries.

But it will also impose requirements on all UK-listed companies to set out proposals to ‘transition’ towards net zero in the coming decades, with firms assessed annually against their published plans.
