Today, the company’s ESG activities are rooted in a belief of doing well by doing good in order to have true impact and enable both people and the planet to thrive.
“We’ve got strong momentum in making ESG a true differentiator — and value driver — for the company,” said Shamina Singh, Founder and President of the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth. “Ellen will be a great addition, helping to expand our efforts as we look at what is most important to our company and where we can deliver the greatest impact on society.”
