Aligning Sustainability and Payments Modernization to Advance ESG Compliance


Date 04:20 PM - 05:10 PM (0 hours 50 minutes)
Tuesday, May 07
Compliance & Regulatory

The payments industry, spurred by regulatory deadlines and market demands, is approaching a tipping point in its journey to digital transformation. Further complicating an already complex undertaking, is the rising priority of sustainability. Though climate pledges by members of the United Nation’s Net-zero Coalition have a deadline more than 20 years into the future, the changes to infrastructure and operating procedures are happening now with the approach of payments modernization. If financial institutions handle climate commitments as an unrelated initiative to core digital transformation, they will miss a tremendous opportunity. In this session, speakers share how to use sustainability goals to inform transformation plans and make headway on ESG commitments now, before investing in and implementing solutions or methodologies that leave valuable carbon savings on the table.
