This paper explores the applications of financial technology on the supervision of sustainable finance. It does this within the context of state level goals and how these can be monitored and enforced using AI applications, supported by satellite imagery and data. Its contribution is in showing how financial technology can aid and support sustainable goals. It finds that institutional investment monitoring variables are not aligned with the variables in either the literature or those that are mandated by legislation. It recommends a greater use of satellite imagery and data in the enforcement of Environmental, Social and Governance goals.
