LPA partners with Evercity for impact measurement and investment
By Joy Dumasia
LPA, the capital markets technology and advisory firm, announced that it had enhanced its ESG consulting services through a partnership with Evercity, a digital platform for impact measurement and investment launched at the UN Global Climate Innovation Lab during COP26 in Glasgow.
Evercity developed a blockchain-based platform to streamline the end-to-end sustainable finance process. The platform makes it easier, cheaper and more transparent to issue green and sustainability-linked bonds. It also helps banks, impact funds, and companies assess EU Taxonomy alignment and monitor and track their sustainable investments.
Evercity is a founding member and leader of the finance working group in the Climate Chain Coalition, a global association co-chaired by the UNFCCC, working to advance blockchain and related digital solutions to help mobilise climate finance and enhance measurement, reporting and verification of climate actions.
As a leader in European RegTech, LPA monitors the numerous amendments of the EU Action Plan and, together with Evercity, will help financial institutions keep abreast of regulatory changes, implement new requirements and track progress against ESG goals.
Hans-Joachim Lefeld, Partner ESG Consulting at LPA, said: “As a leading capital markets technology and consulting firm, we are continuously developing our offering to meet the needs of our clients. As pressure for sustainability rises, financial institutions are recognising the need to move towards a low-carbon economy and have started to adjust their business models to fully embrace ESG requirements. Together with Evercity, we are confident we can provide financial institutions with the tools necessary to achieve their goals.”
IBS Intelligence recently reported that LPA, the capital market technology and advisory leader, announced the expansion of its United Kingdom office with two new hires: Peter Leech as Partner, Head of UK Consulting and Deniz Patel as Director, Head of UK Consulting and Software Sales.
