The United Kingdom has invested in this initiative through the Green Fund Program of the UK-Brazil Prosperity Project, a global fund that allocates approximately $ 110 million to Brazilian projects by 2023, focusing on activities, reforms and pilots in the green areas, finance, trade, energy, health, education , Digital access and cities of the future.
According to Vecarbon, Brazil plays a key role in issuing bonds targeting natural resources. Green bonds are worth more than $ 10 billion and Brazilian issues in international markets are worth $ 5 billion.
