Fintech, Greener Economy & Finance Workshop (FGE&F-WS'2020) is the international workshop co-located with
The International Conference on Sustainable Futures: Environmental, Technological, Social and Economic Matters.
The science has confirmed the world is facing an environmental emergency. As it stands, very few countries are on track to meet either their national climate targets or reach the Sustainable Development Goals. It's now clear we need a radically different approach to governing our economies. A green economy is defined as low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive. In a green economy, growth in employment and income are driven by public and private investment into such economic activities, infrastructure and assets that allow reduced carbon emissions and pollution, enhanced energy and resource efficiency, and prevention of the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. New financial technologies ("fintech") offer the potential to unlock green finance technologies, such as blockchain, the Internet of Things and big data assisting in the transition to a greener economy. By reducing costs and boosting efficiency, fintech mobilizes green finance, enables poorer people to access clean energy through innovative payment systems and facilitate free savings for rich and poor alike.
The financial markets and the promotion of sustainable finance play a key role in mitigating climate change. The topic will be addressed in the Fintech, Greener Economy & Finance workshop, which aims to provide a forum for different perspectives and ideas to stimulate the debate around sustainable future.
The workshop will discuss the following topics:
- challenges of the green economy concept and policies in the context of sustainable development, poverty and equity
- potential opportunities and risks of trade, arising in the transition to the green economy
- impact of climate change on financial markets, and vice versa
- means by which financial markets can support sustainable finance
- significance of digitalisation, financial technology and data for green investments
- challenges in defining sustainability
- role of climate change in financial supervision and financial risks
- blockchain applications for sustainable development
- blockchain use-cases for renewable energy, decentralized electricity market, carbon credits and climate finance
- innovation in financial instruments, including green bonds
- fintech and risks and dangers
- recommendations to design a sustainable financial and economical system
The workshop will include keynotes and panel discussions covering a range of fields concerning sustainable development, modelling and financing:
- What steps are needed to make digital finance more "green sensitive" - at the international, national and local levels?
- How can fintech innovators be encouraged to join the global transition to more sharing, accessible, cleaner, greener, sustainable economies for our common future?
- What can fintech do to help communities make more sustainable decisions?
- Can fintech help build more geographically distributed communities, encourage trust relationships and create peer-to-peer marketplaces?
- How will technologies such as blockchain help to rebalance economic power between large and small/micro producers?
- Can fintech help green businesses move closer to potential investors?
