techUK will bring together experts from the technology industry, the financial services ecosystem and public sector to discuss, exchange on the best route to deliver green finance.
This event is part of the techUK’s #TechGreenFinance Week.
Green finance, has been pushed to the forefront of the agenda with G7 leaders and the United Nations discussing the best solutions to achieving net zero targets for the financial industry but also how the sector can help other industries.
The UK government, for example, is considering creating a legal requirement for private UK companies to outline and disclose climate-related risks to their business in line with Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations, with a mandate potentially coming into force next year.
Vast swathes of the UK’s finance industry will be subject to these new requirements, including major pension schemes, life insurance providers and asset managers.
At this techUK event we will explore what the challenges are and what needs to be addressed to ensure green finance delivers for all, followed by refreshments and drinks at the reception providing our techUK members an additional opportunity to engage and network with the wider stakeholders and techUK members.
The topics covered at this event will include data mobility, standards and exposure and transparency of climate related financial risks.
