The 2021 Budget, announced by the UK Treasury in March 2021, contained a number of references to net zero targets. Through the budget, the UK's Net Zero target has been made part of the UK Government's "overall economic policy objective" and as a result is to be incorporated into the remit of the Bank of England. The budget also includes plans for a new National Infrastructure Bank with £22 billion of financing and for the issuance of the UK's first green government bond or gilt.
