Sustainability at Mastercard
Mastercard contributes to a sustainable future in everything we do, every day. Our global efforts involve advancing social sustainability, conducting business in an open and transparent way and responsibly managing our environmental footprint.
Through our vision - a World Beyond Cash™ - we are advancing global social sustainability by giving people around the world greater access to the financial system, which, in turn, provides a larger and more diverse group of engaged contributors and participants. Whether through the Center for Inclusive Growth, our employees or corporate philanthropy, we are positively impacting the lives of people everywhere.
Ethics and compliance are embedded in our core values and we take a proactive approach to conducting business in an open and transparent way. Mastercard fosters sound governance through an independent board structure and robust risk and compliance programs.
We believe how we do business is as important as what we achieve. We care about the communities in which we live, work and conduct business. Our environmental efforts involve creating sustainable business practices and decreasing our overall environmental footprint by focusing on three areas – energy conservation, recycling and pollution control.
