This report lays the foundation for why it’s so important to leverage this disruption for the benefit of people and planet.

Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank said that we need forward- looking, dynamic data to address the gap in pricing risk due to climate change and nature loss. We can fix this with a planetary computer that connects satellites and sensors, by sharing information securely using Blockchain technologies, and by leveraging Artificial Intelligence for presentation in a standardized format. When combined, these tools allow for more stakeholders to consider climate risk in their decision-making. Climate Fintech actors will be the first movers to connect the needs with solutions and build a financial ecosystem to save the planet.
