SweSIF Seminar on Blockchain Opportunities for Green Investment

Öhman, project partner to the Green Assets Wallet innovation project, hosted a SweSIF seminar on blockchain on February 21st.

Erika Wranegård, Fund Manager at Öhman, presented the opportunities for technology to help scale the green bond market, in particular, how the Green Assets Wallet (GAW) can both lower transaction costs to support the supply of issuance and also deliver trust and transparency to the investor.Tobias Edman, Founder of Geografiska Informationsbyrån, demonstrated the eoMapper remote sensing and the possibilities for cost efficient, automated third party verification of satellite imagery. The eoMapper technology will be used in GAW project pilots to demonstrate these possibilities in practice.The presentations were followed by a panel discussion with Johan Henningson of SEK and Henrik Hjelte of ChromaWay around blockchain technology in challenging markets and for supporting the "second wave" of green bonds, i.e. impact reporting.
