The transition to a sustainable global economy will be the most capital-intensive transition in human history. A new and resilient financial system is required to underpin this economic transition. More and better information is needed for financial markets, institutions, and players to efficiently allocate capital to sustainable investment alternatives. Geospatial data, including earth observation and climate data can provide key elements of the information that is needed to evaluate risks, opportunities, and impacts of (un) sustainable investment (opportunities) to deploy sustainable finance effectively.
Within this webinar, Christophe Christiaen, Sustainable Finance Lead at the Satellite Applications Catapult, will introduce some of the trends and opportunities that are driving the demand for better data within the finance sector, the financial data value chain and the challenges associated with current (sustainability) data and solutions. He will also explore existing, under-served and future use cases for earth observation data within finance. Finally, he will highlight some relevant materials, events, and opportunities to start engaging with the sustainable finance sector.
