This webinar will formally launch Trase Finance, a new initiative produced by SEI, Global Canopy and Neural Alpha. The platform, freely available for use by journalists, organizations and members of the financial sector, provides synthesized data on ownership, lending and corporate legal structures.
By facilitating this transparency, Trase Finance not only allows financial institutions to identify their direct and indirect exposure to deforestation risk, thereby giving them the opportunity to improve the sustainability of their portfolios, but also enables civil society and governmental actors to push for greater accountability and monitor progress towards environmental commitments.
As well as introducing the tool, the webinar will feature speakers from civil society and the financial industry, who will discuss Trase Finance’s impact and the role of the financial sector in tackling deforestation.
Date: 28 October 2020, 14:00-15:15 GMT
