ESG Working Group

Whilst every payments leader would most likely agree that ESG is important to them, the reality is that for many, it languishes at the lower end of the Board and Exec agendas. What's striking is that there is a growing cohort of companies who have successfully woven meaningful ESG initiatives into their core agenda with outstanding results across the board. I'm proud to lead this Working Group and to have the opportunity to highlight these insights, drawing out the relationship with value creation. We will then provide practical and actionable guidance that can help every company, however far they are on their ESG journey.

The ESG Working Group's 2023 kick-off meeting

Together, we can make a difference

The ESG Working Group had a successful in-person project meeting to kick off their 2023 programme. The group mapped out an action plan to record several case-studies at PAY360 from members who wanted to showcase their ESG initiatives. This will go towards building campaign materials to promote ESG within the industry. The meeting was kindly hosted by working group member algbra. Join the ESG Working Group to be a part of shaping the future of the payments industry. Together, we can make a difference

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
