Finastra has announced that it has integrated AI-powered ESG scoring capabilities into its working capital solution, Trade Innovation.

The integration, with CoriolisESG by TradeSun, enables users to book and manage trade and supply chain finance with the added benefit of automated insights into ESG scoring.

This results in a greater understanding of the sustainability of trade and helps organisations to better monitor and manage their impact.    

The solution measures key data against globally-recognised frameworks

Iain MacLennan, Head of Trade and Supply Chain Finance at Finastra, said: “Sustainability is a growing imperative in the world of trade and with the continued emergence and development of regulations in this space, organisations must ensure they can measure their impact to help meet the worldwide ESG mandates and understand where risk can be better managed. That vision is now possible for users of our Trade Innovation technology. Delivering this out-of-the-box integration aligns closely with our company purpose to unlock the power of finance for everyone and our mantra of ‘doing well by doing good’. We look forward to helping our customers gain valuable insights into their ESG data for trade.”

The solution enhances enterprise intelligence and resilience by measuring key entity data against globally-recognised frameworks, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the EU Taxonomy.

Captured information provides insight into international business activity, risk assessment, regulation compliance, geopolitical risk, due diligence and supply chain analysis.
