We are honoured to have the opportunity to share the stage with our partners Islandsbanki to address how banks can fight climate change at this year’s #SBSummit

The Sopra Banking Summit is soon to kick off with a week’s worth of high profile speakers, live sessions and workshops. This mostly digital event is “designed to tackle the biggest issues in the financial sector” and runs from the 18th — 22nd of October.

In the wake of the successful launch of Carbon Insight with our partners Islandsbanki, both CEO of Islandsbanki, Birna Einarsdottir and CEO & Co-Founder of Meniga, Georg Ludviksson were invited by Sopra for a live talk concerning banks and the role they can play in the fight against climate change.

This session will cover the motivation behind the bank to offer a carbon solution, the highs and lows of implementation as well as a few metrics and success stories since going live with a Carbon Footprint tracking solution.
