Sustainability as an imperative for the financial sector

Acting towards a more sustainable world could be the single most important focus point for all of us and our future generations. 193 countries have committed to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. 189 countries have committed to the Paris Agreement. Realising the objectives of these commitments will take more than political commitments alone.

The financial sector is central in addressing today’s opportunities and challenges with the transition to a sustainable society and economy. Having moved from “why” to “how”, the financial sector has strengthened its focus on material issues and attention to core business areas where the greatest impact can be made. At the same time, the booming Nordic fintech start-up scene is leading the way in finding new financial solutions towards a society fit for the future.

Why sustainability and financial technology?

Sustainability is here to stay. It will shape the future of business, including the financial sector. Fuelled by the digital transformation, the sector is going through new technological innovation that can help realise the potential of the financial system which has to act as an important facilitator of the transition into a more sustainable economy.
