Digital automation for climate bonds and community-scale project finance

How can we identify and build key digital infrastructure for smart climate financing?

Can we envision an end-to-end digital climate bond ecosystem that supports local action?

This dialogue convenes leading thinkers in the climate finance space with a strong background in financial technology. The dialogue will explore how automation (financial and contractual) can reduce costs and frictions in financing climate action, both from the angle of individual project development at the community scale, as well as from the perspective of large scale investors and asset managers.
