In 2012 the UK Green Investment Bank plc (GIB) was launched by the UK Government. It was the first institution of its type in the world – a publicly funded bank designed to mobilise private finance into the green energy sector. Between 2012 and 2017, GIB helped to finance more than £12bn of UK green infrastructure projects. Founded in 1969 in Sydney, Australia, Macquarie Group Limited (Macquarie) is a diversified financial group with offices in 30 markets, employing over 15,700 people globally.

In 2017, GIB was acquired by Macquarie from the UK Government. Now operating as the Green Investment Group, GIG brings together the GIB business with Macquarie Capital’s renewables team to create one of the world’s largest teams of specialist green investors.
