In a new Insight Briefing from Environment Analyst, we compare the post-pandemic investment and stimulus plans of different governments worldwide, including their sustainability credentials, which will frame future opportunities for the environmental industry sector.

The report, entitled ‘Funding the build-back: where investments will be greenest’, brings perspectives and analysis from the sustainable investment and financial community, including Environmental Financial Consulting Group (EFCG) and S&P Global Ratings.
