Climate-focused fintechs are developing solutions to analyze lending portfolios through a climate lens
New innovations in fintech are bridging the gap between financial institutions and understanding climate risks in loan portfolios. Lenders can leverage software services to uncover climate-related risks, comply with a changing regulatory environment, and begin implementing more sustainable investment strategies.
