New Rise Insights Report Released on Climate Fintech and the Growing Green Tech Market

Rise, created by Barclays has published its latest edition of Rise Insights, focusing on the trending topic of climate fintech and how technology can shape a more sustainable world through financial products and services.

The report covers the growing ‘green’ tech market by discussing the key enablers that are driving change – data, policy and technology – and showcasing how game-changing fintechs are both improving sustainability and adding value.

Tackling climate change is an essential component of the global sustainability agenda. The fintech sector has an important contribution to make in reducing emissions, achieving net-zero agendas and enabling climate action.

  • Contributions from the London Stock Exchange Group, Plaid and Illuminate Finance on how data, regulatory policy and technology enable change in climate fintech and support opportunities to develop new products and services
  • A landscape analysis covering many of the notable companies across carbon offsetting and sustainable challenger banks, risk management, ESG data reporting, energy trading and marketplaces, and impact investing
  • Case studies and articles from startups building consumer-facing digital banking applications, new capital market assets, blockchain-enabled marketplaces and API platforms that embed decarbonisation across crypto and insurance
  • Sustainability initiatives from Barclays teams collaborating with fintechs and founders

Rise produces a quarterly Insights report that provides readers with a snapshot of the global Rise FinTech ecosystem and highlights the latest developments in the constantly evolving world of new technology for financial services.
