Global Investment Summit (GIS) 2021 – Virtual
The UK will host a one-day Global Investment Summit (GIS) in October to secure foreign investment in UK green industries of the future.
We’re inviting the world’s leading businesses and investors to the UK.
It will be hosted by HM The Queen and the Prime Minister and supported by other members of the Royal Family.
The summit will show how the UK can shape the future of green investment and comes in the lead up to COP26 in November.
Investment has allowed the UK’s green industries of the future to thrive. It is fundamental to our long-term prosperity by securing high-quality jobs, economic growth and new businesses.
By showcasing the very best of the UK’s clean technologies and innovative companies, the Global Investment Summit (GIS) will:
- drive forward the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan for a green recovery
- demonstrate how £12 billion of government investment is creating and supporting green jobs in the UK
- underpin why the UK is a global hub for green technology and finance
- make the case for global investment in UK companies
The summit builds on the success of the newly established UK Office for Investment, which recently secured a landmark agreement between Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Investment Company and the UK government for a £1 billion commitment to life sciences.
