Green Finance Outlook 2022: Trends, concerns and new entrants

The green finance market is anticipated to grow significantly in 2022 as the urgent need to transition towards a low carbon economy is beginning to materialize into action.

On one hand, banks are being pressured to ‘clean’ their books and begin divesting from fossil fuels, reorienting their funds towards greener developments. 

On the other hand, there are climate-centric companies that have mostly been working under the radar on sustainable technologies and services that have proven profitability, and they are hungry for capital.

The two industries are set to grow closer next year, especially with new fintechs coming in to bridge the gap and pair capital with clean projects.

A new wave of ‘climate fintechs’ is emerging, offering consumer products such as wooden debit cards and carbon footprint trackers, as well as commercial services like ESG management and portfolio optimization for fossil fuel divestment.

So, after a busy 2021 -- What trends will continue in 2022?
