Revolutionizing Sustainability: How Green Finance is Reshaping the Future of Credit Card Manufacturing

In today’s world, more and more consumers are becoming conscious of the impact their purchases have on the environment. As a result, there has been a significant shift towards eco-friendly products in the market. But why are consumers choosing these products over traditional ones? Let’s take a look at some of the reasons behind this trend.

As the demand for sustainable products continues to grow, it is essential for businesses to adapt to this trend and offer eco-friendly options to meet consumer needs.

What does this have to do with finance, you ask? According to a 2022 survey completed by Mambu, a SaaS core banking platform, 63% of consumers say they would like the core financial services they use to be sustainable. Surprisingly, almost half (49%) are willing to switch in order to make it happen!

Consumers want sustainable banks to prioritize goals by reducing carbon emissions, supporting purpose over profits, and backing planet-friendly companies and initiatives like renewable energy and green projects. The same survey from Mambu indicates that 45% of consumers would like to see sustainable credit and debit cards. Green finance offers banks and financial institutions a substantial opportunity to make a positive impact.

First of all, what is ‘Green Finance,’ you ask? In a nutshell, Green Finance supports environment-friendly activities such as buying eco products or constructing sustainable infrastructure. Due to rising awareness of risks from harmful practices, this finance is increasingly favored by institutions. As consumers opt for eco products, institutions with sustainable options gain customers and expand market reach.

Why is this important? It’s simple – consumers want to support companies that prioritize sustainability. By integrating green finance into their operations, financial institutions can attract and retain customers who value eco-friendly practices. For example, Mastercard aims to reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 38% and Scope 3 emissions by 20% by 2025. Their campuses and data centers are LEED-certified, with almost 90% of global workspace meeting green certification standards. They are committed to sourcing 100% renewable electricity through participation in RE100. Mastercard’s supplier engagement has earned top ratings from CDP since 2018 for managing and disclosing climate risks and achievements. Visa has transitioned to 100% renewable electricity across their global offices and data centers, has achieved carbon neutrality across their operations for 2020, and has committed to maintaining that in the future.
