How green is green?
The challenge of sustainable finance
The global financial system faces many challenges as it transitions into making green investment the norm. For investors, green bonds are a unique opportunity to align their financial arrangements with environmental goals. Watertight evidence is needed to ensure investments are being used to support genuinely green projects.
A single source of immutable truth
Digitalisation is redefining the economics of the entire green bond life cycle. Being able to rely on a ‘single version of the truth’ on the blockchain means it is no longer necessary to check and double-check data accuracy and quality - all relevant information is synchronised on an ongoing basis.
Immutability supports ESG strategies
Green bonds must deliver on their promise to balance finances with sustainability. Modern technologies provide real-time transparency to ensure that investments meet the necessary criteria to be considered 'green'.
Point of view
The immutable green
Blockchain and distributed ledger technology will transform how a multitude of industry stakeholders manage green bonds, ensuring all participants share the same data in real time. And because all data is immutable, the provenance of green data is assured.
