ESGFinTech100

The world’s most innovative ESG tech companies that every financial institution needs to know about in 2022

About the List

The ESGFinTech100 is an annual list of 100 of the world’s most innovative ESG companies offering solutions for the financial services industry selected by a panel of industry experts and analysts. These are the companies every financial institution needs to know about as they consider and develop their ESG assessment and performance improvement strategies.

The list is part of a series of studies that highlights the leading companies in sectors such as RegTech, InsurTech and WealthTech to help executives stay on top of the latest innovations. Companies that won places on these lists generated huge awareness among financial services firms. Many were approached directly by banks and financial institutions, while other got a more welcome reception from prospective clients and partners.

Following the success of the previous lists and driven by demand from our network, we are pleased to launch the selection process for the ESGFinTech100 for 2022. Make sure you nominate your company or a company you work with here.
