Downing and its peers issues warning to the PM on net zero commitments


What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.


Commitments to net zero

Downing, as a member of the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF), alongside other investment managers, banks, asset owners and other financial institutions, has warned that the government’s recent rhetoric risks stopping the finance sector from making the transformative investments needed to reach net zero and grow the economy.

The industry has warned that without long-term clarity from government, the £50-60bn per year of investment needed to reach net zero won’t happen.

The warning comes in the form of a letter sent to the Prime Minister, signed by 36 financial institutions who are members of the UKSIF and represent £1.5 trillion in assets under management.

Downing's Head of Responsible Investment, Roger Lewis, commented: "As the financial and geopolitical realities of decarbonisation start to hit, these 'Dear World Leader...' letters will become increasingly important. Holding governments accountable and policy advocacy for net zero commitments is vital for financial services given asset managers’ role as providers of equity and debt capital in actually achieving these commitments by mid-century.”

As a responsible investor, we invest for return while caring about the world we live in. Since we were established in 1986, we have invested in innovative companies and managed assets that positively impact society - whether that’s caring for the elderly, improving healthcare, building homes or producing clean energy.
