Digital Leadership Forum: New Insights on Fintech Sustainability

8 July 2021 at 10:00am - 11:30am BST

29 June 2021

Fintechs and large organisations both have a key role to play in addressing the climate emergency, promoting financial inclusion, and maintaining strong ethical foundations through environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies from which to lead by example. At the same time, it is increasingly necessary to manage growing regulatory scrutiny and evolving rules, including around the carbon footprint of the technology being used by such firms.

But how can companies contribute to a greener and more sustainable economy in a way that ensures their business is best placed to thrive, not in spite of but because of an ESG strategy? What role does ethical data management and governance play in sustainable growth? And why are innovative fintechs often seen as trailblazers in promoting ethical strategies and addressing broader ESG concerns?
