As COP26 develops, Stan Chen, RecycleGo; Simon Barnby, Archax; Marley Gray, Microsoft, and Anastasia Kinsky, GDF join Alan Cohn, Steptoe to talk about the role of digital assets in sustainable finance.
Anastasia Kinsky provides an overview of the GDF ESG report, Digital Assets: Laying ESG Foundations, in which members have shared their insights on the ESG strategies for decarbonising crypto, as well as the uses for tokenization in providing the traceability, verification, and transparency needed for impact-linked bonds. The panellists look at the many ways in which blockchain touches both sustainability and finance, particularly when it comes to intangible assets such as carbon credits, which are based on trust. Panellists also discuss how understanding the inefficiencies to the post-trade space in the traditional financial sector helps us address the challenges in sustainable finance.
As countries connect for the first 5 year check-in since the Paris Agreements, the panel looks at how we can further cross industry collaboration to keep a holistic approach to fighting climate change and accelerate solutions.
