The world’s most innovative ESG tech companies that every financial institution needs to know about in 2023

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.

Last year’s ESGFinTech100 list received widespread attention. Companies that won places on the lists generated huge awareness among financial institutions and the wider ESG community. Many were approached directly by banks, investors and other financial services firms while others got a more welcome reception from prospective clients and partners.

The list has been updated for 2023 to recognise the next generation of solution providers helping the financial sector tackle climate risk, sustainability, social responsibility and governance challenges. The list aims to help senior management and sustainability leaders evaluate which ESG tech solutions have market potential and are most likely to succeed and help financial institutions in their transition to net-zero.

A range of factors was considered by the Advisory Board and FinTech Global team to make the final selection including:

  • Industry significance of the problem being solved
  • Growth in terms of capital raised, revenue, customer traction
  • Innovation of ESG technology solution offered
  • Potential cost savings, efficiency improvement, impact on ESG imperatives and/or revenue enhancements generated for clients
  • How important is it for financial institutions to know about the company?
