About Brazil Green Finance Programme
As an opportunity identified through bilateral cooperation between the Brazilian and British governments, the Brazil Green Finance Programme seeks to encourage sustainable investments in infrastructure to support Brazil’s economic development. Programme activities will not only contribute to Brazil’s transition to a more inclusive and low carbon economy but also support and develop initiatives to reduce gender inequalities.
EY was selected by the UK Government to lead the consortium of organisations to deliver the objectives of the programme. EY is supported by The Carbon Trust, SITAWI and IMC Worldwide, as well as a number of local, international, public and private sector organisations. Find out more about each company below:

As part of the 2030 agenda, the SDGs comprise the strategy of 17 objectives and 169 goals by 2030.
