About Green Investment Group
UK Green Investment Bank (UK GIB) was created in 2012 by the UK government to attract private funds for the financing of the private sector's investments related to environmental preservation and improvement. It is structured as a public limited company and is owned by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Its headquarters are in Edinburgh, and it has a secondary office in London. The bank funds green projects across the United Kingdom and mobilises other private sector capital into the UK’s green economy.
In March 2016 the UK Government launched a process to move the Green Investment Bank into the private sector, causing controversy. In August 2017, the GBP 2.3 billion sale of the Green Investment Bank to Australia's Macquarie was finalised. The bank's name changed to the Green Investment Group.
UK GIB became an Equator Principles signatory in March 2016. BankTrack profiled this financial institution as part of our Equator Principles Track and Chase Project.
