Digital SDG Finance Bulletin #2
The second issue of the Digital SDG Finance Bulletin is out! Its main aim is to shed light on the development of the latest digital finance technologies and their impact on the UN Sustainable Development Goals implementation.
The Digital SDG Finance Bulletin is a joint initiative by the Climate Chain Coalition and Evercity.io with the support of the Luxembourg Blockchain Lab. This time we have included interviews of 2 leaders of the digital SDG finance community and a detailed overview of the use cases by the Climate Chain Coalition members with a special accent on the value that technology brings to global sustainable development.
Key topics of the #2 issue:
Scaling sustainable finance by digitalization
Trends combined: digital financing & climate tech
Blockchain use-cases solving SDG challenges
“It is more than time to take concrete actions. We can act upon SDGs and Blockchain is a fantastic tool to achieve the 17 SDGs goals. We are proud to support Evercity in its quest to support investments in SDGs and the issuance of sustainable bonds.” said Emilie Allaert, Project Lead, Luxembourg Blockchain Lab.
Alexey Shadrin, founder and CEO of Evercity and CCC finance working group leader, said Bulletin #2 will serve as a useful source of information to deal with unprecedented crises. “Digital technologies open a new universe of innovative, programmable, and fully traceable sustainable finance instruments. They enable better evaluation and distribution of impact among investors while being more flexible and accessible for the issuers. We rely on your kind support in spreading this publication to help bring in more talents and capital into this space.”
“It is now well established that the digital technologies can support climate and SDG actions as well as climate policy making, by streamlining, increasing efficiency and reducing cost. What is less known is the capability of the digital technologies to enable climate and SDG solutions that otherwise would not be possible. The combination of IoT, DLT and AI to cover the production, transfer and processing of data along its value chain is particularly effective in that regards.” said Massamba Thioye, CCC Co-Chair & Manager, UN Climate Change Secretariat.
