ResponsibleRisk Ltd was founded to drive improvements in Sustainable Finance adoption and outcomes, via better understanding, data and solutions.
New approaches to the engagement of business decision makers that empowers leaders to drive impact across boundaries
The Sustainable Finance challenge
$47 trillion of capital is pledged to Sustainable Finance and supporting outcomes aligned to Sustainability and Impact goals, such as the UN SDGs.
This huge volume of capital is only trickling from behind a dam created by uncertainty from lack of data, taxonomies, schemas, reporting and products, robust enough to satisfy the risk register of financial institutions.
The result is a lack of confidence about viable options for investing in sustainable initiatives.
Culture holds back strategy and a new culture is needed that attracts and retains top graduates and new clients. This culture must be built on a clear leadership that drives purpose, via execution of the triple bottom line.
Managing what you measure has led to over-extraction of the commons such as; Oceans; Tundras; Forest; People. Measures such as ESG need to become central to new operational norms, accounting and integrated reporting standards
A digital twin of our planet is being created allowing us to measure and manage our impact. IoT, Satellites, 5G, Cloud, AI and ML can help create new sustainable revenue streams and profit pools.
