Solidatus has been chosen by the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) as one of 11 UK-headquartered FinTech companies to join a virtual trade delegation to New York Climate Week from Monday, 20 September to Friday, 1 October 2021.
The constant rise of ESG has created a mandate for the FinTech and RegTech companies of the world - as organisations race to become compliant against a backdrop of vague standards and complex data, the need for a clear, concise and innovative solution has become paramount.
With one in $3 invested in ESG and sustainability across the United States, it's easy to see why the need has become so great. Alongside other pioneering UK firms specialising in ESG, we will be showcasing our award-winning solution to further accelerate the financial industry's ESG and sustainability goals - from achieving net-zero, to enabling climate action - all through the use of new and emerging technologies.
Speaking about this thought-provoking mission, Kunal Khatri, Her Majesty's Acting Trade Commissioner for the US comments, “The UK has been at the heart of global financial services innovation for decades, and as we lead up to the COP26 Summit in Glasgow, UK companies are poised to play an even greater part in driving ESG and sustainability across the financial industry. Fintech in particular will have a crucial role to play in achieving net-zero by spurring green innovation and expertise into sustainable investments, by providing companies with better tools to measure and mitigate their climate impact, and by giving consumers the information they need to make more informed decisions. The UK has world leading talent, technology and businesses with an enormous amount to offer to the US market we are excited to bring this delegation of cutting-edge technology firms to New York Climate Week”.
We look forward to working with truly trailblazing tech companies from across the UK to not only enable the financial services industry to better understand their data, and build and develop successful ESG and sustainability strategies, but to be a part of a mission designed to protect our environment and bring about positive change for the future.
