Empowering people around the world

Social Sustainability

For Mastercard, social sustainability begins with an inspired workforce and extends beyond our business to positively impact the lives of the people we reach around the world. When it comes to our workforce, we are dedicated to cultivating our culture of respect and inclusion, encouraging our employees to bring their authentic selves to work to change the world for the better. We are also leading the way on inclusive growth so that everyone has greater access to the financial system and the chance to benefit from an expanding economy. Whether through our employees, or the partnerships, programs and products developed by the Mastercard Foundation, our Center for Inclusive Growth or the Mastercard Labs for Financial Inclusion, we are committed to being a force for good in the world.
