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.

Blog Entries

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

  • Open data 

Deadline for Submission: Friday 8 October 14:00 

If you are interested and would like to benefit from techUK’s promotion on the website, newsletter and social media platforms, please get in touch with us now
