Tech Green Finance Week
techUK’s Financial Services Programme will be holding its Tech Green Finance Week ahead of the techUK member event: Delivering Green Finance, taking place on 21 October. As part of the campaign week we will be promoting members’ thought leadership pieces and blogs.
If you would like to contribute, we would require a blog piece of around 500 words, a blog title, and a 150-character description for the sub-title. The blogs will feature on the techUK website and will be promoted via Twitter and LinkedIn throughout the week.
Theme & Topics
The week will focus on the challenges presented by green finance and the opportunities for the technology and financial industries to come together to make a difference and support the transition to a low-carbon economy.
What/How technology can help us crack some of the challenges around green finance? Do we need global standards and how can we establish those? What data do we need, in which format and how do we collect and access it? How do we establish and safeguard trust?
Please see below a range of topics to be discussed;
Financing the transition to a low-carbon economy
The role of technology and the importance of data
Recognised standards certification
Consumers’ behaviour changes
Assessment, reporting and disclosure of outputs
The right approach: regulator’s power/impact and industry’s role
The UK’s approach and ecosystem
Formalising carbon trading markets
Exposure and transparency of climate related financial risks
Deadline for Submission: Friday 8 October 14:00
