The Sustainable Fintech Alliance, a core working group of the MENA Fintech Association (MFTA), has launched the Sustainability Report Fintech during Abu Dhabi Finance Week.
The report, which features an exclusive interview with H.E. Mariam Al Mheiri, UAE Minister of Climate Change and Environment, showcases all the incredible initiatives that MFTA’s members and partners are rolling out covering some of the most fundamental aspects of sustainability: preserving the environment, promoting inclusion and equality, enabling access to finance for underserved communities and refugees, and more.
As technology evolves, and consumers increasingly demand more conscious products and services, Fintechs are uniquely placed to lead the way by thinking and acting sustainability. The achievement of Net Zero ambitions, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) also rests on the ability and determination to work together and establish purposeful partnerships, across all level of society. With this in mind, the report also features a unique piece authored by the United Nation High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which explains how technology and Fintechs are contributing to getting help where is needed faster and more efficiently.
The report is intended as the first chapter of a series of publications, where the Sustainable Fintech Alliance will continue exploring different aspects of sustainability, with exclusive insights from its members, academia, and institutional partners from across the world.
