Stockholm Green Digital Finance, together with the asset manager Öhman and others, in 2018 launched the development a block chain technology to help investors measure and ensure the impact of green bonds. Block chain technology can stimulate the green investment market through cost-effective technology that enables investors to directly verify and monitor their green investments.
The technology will help to scale up the market for green investments, partly by reducing the costs for issuers and increasing the supply, and partly by enabling investors to be able to enter more difficult markets where the needs are greatest to deliver on the global sustainability goals.
There is a great need for investors in green bonds to ensure that green money goes to financing environmentally friendly projects and delivering promised environmental benefits. The new technology will create the reliability of environmental certification many investors lack in order to dare to take the step of investing green.
The outcome of the development project was Green Asset Wallet that was launched in 2019.
