Financial Sector Technology and Innovation Scheme
MAS has earmarked S$50 million out of S$250 million from the FSTI scheme to support Green FinTech solutions and projects.
Technology and Sustainability are the two key driving forces shaping the future of financial services. Accordingly, MAS has been actively promoting FinTech and Green Finance. The FinTech journey began in 2015 and Singapore is today often cited as one of the leading FinTech hubs in the world.
The Sustainability agenda is more nascent, with the launch of the Green Finance Action Plan in 2019. One of the key strategies is to harness our strengths in FinTech to address the key challenges in the Green Finance space – what we call Green FinTech.
MAS embarked on Project Greenprint, an umbrella of Green FinTech solutions and projects aimed at promoting a greener financial ecosystem, through three key pillars:
We are currently establishing a consortium of financial institutions, FinTech firms and industry players with expertise in Green FinTech to identify specific use cases and to pilot technology solutions that can play a role in addressing the three pillars of Project Greenprint.
