Trade Finance TV: How should sustainable finance frameworks evolve?

At the COP26 in Glasgow held in November 2021, the importance of frameworks that everyone can agree for moving from talking the talk to walking the walk became very clear. The EU Taxonomy has covered much of that ground, but how do we make further progress?

Dr Rebecca Harding, CEO of Coriolis Technologies explains how the difficulty facing trade – and trade finance – when it comes to sustainable finance is ensuring ESG transition is manageable and measurable.

“We have the technology to nudge behaviours, we have the data that is out there, and now creating those frameworks into actionable plans and actionable metrics is the most important thing,” she says.

In a short interview on Trade Finance TV Harding explains how to move from “do no harm” to doing things that make a positive contribution, and how to incentivise the change.
