ARC LP: Creating Sustainability-Oriented Fintech Lending Platforms in Australia

Project: Research

Project Details


This project aims to investigate how FinTech lending companies can use customers' environmental information to access their creditworthiness, and whether lending decisions based on environmental information can promote pro-environmental behavior and expedite the societal transformation towards a low-carbon economy. These aims will be achieved through a quantitative analysis that evaluates the use of a customer's "carbon footprint" for predicting default risk, and a field experiment that analyses the economic and environmental benefits of the proposal. The project intends to develop a new approach that contributes to developing a sustainable lending platform for Fintech firms and establishing sustainable FinTech standards for policymakers.
