Think Tank Hub Geneva

Website: Organizer's Website
Come and join us for the first Think Tank Talk of the year on fintechs and sustainable finance!

This 1-hour online event, which is part of the Think Tank Hub’s Think Tank Talk series, aims to shed light on the question of how countries can enable a faster and more comprehensive mobilization of mainstream finance (private and institutional investors, as well as customers) towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By harnessing a more sustainable financial system, FinTechs contribute to finance the SDGs and the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

Aware of the different dynamics and approaches taken by countries to develop the field of Sustainable FinTechs, a few questions arise, such as:

  • How have countries used financial technologies to address SDG issues and align their financial systems with the SDGs?
  • How have different countries taken advantage of the opportunities, as well as addressed the risks, related to digital sustainable finance?
  • What would be the regulatory and non-regulatory barriers to scale-up digital sustainable finance?
  • What is the role of researchers and think tankers in the debate about digital sustainable finance?
