Smart Infrastructure and Asset Monitoring, UK
The growing impact of climate change globally is significant and increasingly stark. On the other, there is a policy momentum building within the UK Government and globally that will have an increasingly significant impact on global asset values and investment decisions.
The legal commitment to Net Zero is a huge step forward and will underpin fundamental changes in every sector of the economy. This has been underlined by the growth of serious commitments towards more sustainable asset investing:
At COP26, the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) committed to aligning the $130 trillion of private capital they are responsible for behind the drive to achieve net zero by 2050.
Global issuance of green bonds exceeded $500 billion in 2021 and is expected to exceed $1 trillion in 2022.
Megatrends such as the drive for Net Zero and the growth of ESG investing will, over time, lead to an unprecedented shift in global asset values away from ‘brown assets’ and into assets which can which measure, understand and control carbon emissions.
UnifAI is working with a major UK consultancy to deploy our technology as a tool for smart infrastructure and asset monitoring to optimise asset performance and for digital ESG assurance.
