This report discusses the impact of ESG in the payments industry. It covers the different frameworks that are used by payment companies and financial institutions to adapt their businesses to ESG requirements. It also highlights the fact that the ESG sector does not have a global framework that can be used to standardize approaches to ESG and effectively compare companies' ESG initiatives. The report also covers green bonds issued by financial institutions and payment providers to support the financing of ESG projects.

ESG is a growing trend that is affecting all industries, including the payments industry. The interest in the sector increased in recent years due to consumers' and investors' desire to see companies reflect their values. A growing number of companies have been recruiting in the sector in the past few years too. Through this approach, some companies have integrated ESG within their operations and are looking to make ESG part of their long-term strategies. Though still limited, some companies have fully dedicated ESG teams to integrate solutions and make operations more ESG-compliant, and also provide services to consumers to help them address their impact on the climate.
