How can finance and technology work together to help the environment? Banks currently produce 700 times more emissions from loans than offices. The current situation must change, and technology can help, let’s see how!

Marianne Haahr will guide you on the different ways financial institutions can help the environment, and the role of Fintech in this mission. Marianne has extensive experience in this domain and strongly believes that Fintech can be used to meet the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Her goal is to reduce the carbon impact that the financial sector has on the environment through innovation and providing knowledge.

During this course, you will understand the importance of developing more sustainable solutions in the financial industry and how Fintech can help achieve that. You will also learn about the actions that are already in place and some of the big opportunities lying ahead.
