VIDEO: Leading green economy figures offer their candid views on what net zero means to them ahead of the Net Zero Festival 2021
Dr Rhian-Mari Thomas is chief executive of the Green Finance Institute (GFI), an independent organisation established in 2019 as a result of recommendations made by the Green Finance Taskforce convened by the UK government.
Sitting at the intersection of the public and private sectors, the GFI is backed by government but led by bankers, bringing together global experts with the aim of overcoming barriers to greener financial markets and investment in the UK's net zero transition.
In new series profiling some of the speakers taking part at the Net Zero Festival later this month, Thomas gives BusinessGreen a run down of her priorities for the year ahead and shares the moment she decided to apply her banking experience to the net zero transition.
