The world is waking up to the importance of embedding sustainable practices in every part of society and business, from the start of the supply chain to the consumer. Additionally, SDGs represent vast investment opportunities, offering USD10 trillion in market prospects and 380 million jobs to be created by 2030, according to the UN.
Sustainable banking involves using ESG criteria to set the policy agenda for otherwise traditional banking. Whereas banks and other financial institutions historically have focused on the balance between risk and return, sustainable banking adds another factor, impacts, to create a third dimension that bank and fintech leaders must focus on when running their businesses.
The Payments Association, have just launched a new research initiative: "Sustainability in Fintech". This initiative is being driven through our Project Inclusion working group and in partnership with its benefactor, Mastercard and the output of this new initiative will be a report which we'll be publishing in May.
How can technology, products, services, insights and partnerships, address urgent social, economic and environmental challenges on a commercially sustainable basis and help ensure that people can reach their full potential, that economic growth is inclusive, and that the planet can thrive.
Join this webinar as we will be sharing some of the key findings taken from this detailed research and hear from industry leaders and subject matter experts about key innovations, trends and strategies from fintechs and banks who have pivoted to offer sustainable products and who operate with sustainable business practices.
As with most things in the industry, this will be a collaborative exchange of ideas on how we should move to a world of sustainability in payments. Please join us to have your say.
Agenda and speakers to be announced shortly.
