  Thanks for this thoughtful and well researched blog series Rodrigo.  I think this is so much better than the Tariq Fancy analysis which is just rank cynicism. You highlight the compexity, lack of rewards, incentives, penalties, motivation, cultural inertia etc.  I would argue that serious ESG only really started in the UK around 2018 with the launch of the BoE paper "Transition in thinking the impact of climate change on the UK Banking sector",. Before that it was CSR, responsible investing and not a main board issue sadly.  So without giving the industry a pass for one moment, I have seen the activity, responsibility, directives, regulations and now prosecutions ramp up significantly in the last four years and expect that to continue over the next few years.  But again you are right we need to use the power of fintech's data, NGO's citizens to crowd in and blow the whistle where we see malpractice.  But also help those FSI's that are transitioning through this complexity with positive intent and progress, evidenced  via transparent scorecards.  
Emphasis on ESG will guarantee rapid growth to fintechs
