This week’s Budget 2020 “may represent the beginning of an almost unprecedented infrastructure spend across the UK,” said Joest Bunse, associate director for EMEA infrastructure at S&P Global Ratings. The Budget, together with an upcoming National Infrastructure Strategy, is set to transform the way infrastructure is planned and delivered in the UK.
Bunse highlighted how environmental and social considerations played a key role in shaping the budget measures, stating that “this mirrors the shift we are observing in the investment community towards applying an ESG lens to capital allocation.”
