Andrew Steel, Global Group Head of Sustainable Finance at Fitch Group commented, “The ESG market continues to grow and innovate at a rapid pace but, with taxonomies still evolving, harmonization of standards remains a challenge. Diginex’s product platform is a significant market enabler for companies seeking to gather, manage and disclose ESG data and for investors seeking better quality consistent ESG information. We are tremendously excited about the products currently being offered and those under development by Diginex.” Shea Wallon, Managing Director at Fitch Ventures said, “Fitch is the only credit rating agency with a comprehensive, systematic & credit-focused approach showing how ESG factors affect credit ratings. It’s through this lens that we are excited to back Diginex as the team drives the business forward to offer ESG reporting solutions that work for companies of all sizes. It’s a hugely exciting opportunity for us and we are very proud of our involvement in this purpose driven business.”
Miles Pelham, Founder and Chairman of Diginex added, “We are delighted to have Fitch Ventures partner with us as Diginex continues to grow, sharing our vision to make ESG reporting effortless as it moves into the mainstream. Earlier this year, we launched the DiginexESG platform, which provides an accessible and transparent tool for companies to identify and report on key areas of materiality against the world’s most recognised frameworks. This latest funding round will enable us to continue bringing new technologies that help businesses deliver on their sustainability goals, including with our latest DiginexClimate platform which helps companies manage their carbon footprint on their path to net zero.” Founded in 2017, with a global team of technology and impact experts, Diginex is growing rapidly and is a technology partner to major organisations around the world including Microsoft, Coca-Cola, the US State Department, the World Economic Forum and the United Nations. Its products and platforms, including DiginexESG, stand out as a new approach to sustainability reporting, as investor demand continues to increase and new regulations threaten to leave behind non-compliant businesses. By using the latest innovations such as blockchain technology and AI to manage and validate data, Diginex makes ESG reporting more affordable and accessible to companies of all sizes.
