We were pleased to host New Synergies: Digital Finance Solutions for ESG Challenges which was part of our COP Talks series. This series builds on the themes and ambitions of COP27, which wis held in Sharm El-Sheikh on November 6 - 18. The financial services industry is an integral player in the quest to achieve a net-zero economy and to support broader sustainable development goals, and our COP Talks will cover some of the toughest yet most important issues facing the industry.
The fight against climate change, achieving a just transition and broader sustainable development goals will require trillions of dollars from public, private sector and philanthropic sources. Digital finance—including big data, artificial intelligence, blockchain and the Internet of Things—offers innovative solutions to de-risk, scale up and bring down the cost of sustainable finance. How can new financial technology help aggregate and analyze ESG data, support financial inclusion and enable ESG investors to assess performance and impact? How are digital solutions facilitating climate risk assessment, reporting and ESG compliance?
