The Sustainable Fintech Alliance publishes climate action report

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 HE Mariam Al Mheiri, UAE Minister of Climate Change and Environment, showcases all the incredible initiatives MFTA’s members and partners are rolling out and covers some of the most fundamental aspects of sustainability: preserving the environment, promoting inclusion and equity, 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 positioned to lead the way by thinking and acting sustainably. Achieving the Net Zero ambitions and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) also rests on the ability and willingness to collaborate and establish targeted partnerships, across all levels of society. With this in mind, the report also includes a unique piece authored by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which explains how technology and Fintechs help get help where it’s needed faster and more efficiently.

The report is intended as the first chapter in a series of publications, in which the Sustainable Fintech Alliance will continue to explore various aspects of sustainability, with exclusive insights from its members, academia and institutional partners from around the world.

Nameer Khan, Chairman of the MFTA commented, “The Sustainable Fintech Alliance brings together some of the world’s most powerful companies and experts in the field to have open, honest and above all action-oriented discussions on sustainability through its extensive network of worldwide collaborations and partnerships with like-minded organisations, regulators and academics, and to advance the cause of the SDGs and Net Zero in our region.This report is the continuation of a journey we started by delivering a first-of-its-kind sustainability education program specifically designed for Fintechs, in partnership with the London Institute of Banking and Finance MENA (LIBF), Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) ), and Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC).|The Sustainable Fintech Alliance publishes the Sustainability Fintech Report
