694. Insights: Can fintech ever be environmentally sustainable?

Benjamin Ensor is joined by some great guests to talk about the environmental footprint of financial services and the changes needed to change it.

Our expert host, Benjamin Ensor, is joined by some great guests to ask: "Can financial services ever be sustainable?”

From the carbon cost of everyday payment transactions, data servers, plastic credit cards, and investments in polluting industries - not to mention the international conferences that require some serious jet-setting – it’s safe to say that our industry has never looked to put its environmental impact front and centre.

But, with global temperatures rising and climates across the globe being altered by our behaviour, can financial services really afford to ignore sustainability any longer?

This week's guests include:

  • Ken Hart, CEO and Founder, Snowdrop Solutions
  • Sarah Habib, Customer Strategist, 11:FS
  • Heidi Lindvall, General Partner, Pale Blue Dot
