Sustainable finance comparable to open banking, according to Endjin…

Matthew Adams believes that data ne to be available on the journeys of products and services, but there does not have to be an overly intrusive taxonomy for every element of the supply chain.

Comparing this to open banking regulation, Adams tells Finextra: “Initially it was imposed but now it is being seen as an opportunity to add the data that’s needed to enrich and add value to those exchanges. We need the same kind of approach throughout value chains.”

Similar to open banking, there would be scope for each participant in a supply chain to add their own commercial signature, which would be necessary to allow companies to see sustainability as something more than a regulatory or legal requirement.

“With open banking, there was push and pull. Governments mandated open banking but then created the space in which people can innovate and create commercial opportunities. I think sustainable finance will create the same environment.

“We need to identify key influencers in the value chain who are going to bring to bear the regulatory side of it, but within that space, we need to help people see what opportunities there are for innovation.”

Asked why the gathering and harnessing of data to sustainable goals is more achievable than ever before, Adams describes the availability of data “at whatever security, whatever fidelity, whatever scale” as the “base line” to build on.

“We have the understanding within the technology industry that openness, APIs, data exchanges and connecting up multiple 3rd party systems is the way technology ne to interact. So the mindset is there and the technology is there. No we need to decide what to do with it.”
