Together, we can make a Difference

Welcome to The Payments Association's ESG toolkit

The purpose of the ESG toolkit is to provide a living and breathing library of helpful resources – both created by us and collated from selected third parties – that support companies in the payments industry in adopting sustainable and progressive strategies towards the environment, our society, and their own business governance.

“Our goal is to build momentum for change. We want to help every member, from start-ups to scale-ups, financial institutions and corporates, on their ESG journeys, via inspiring stories and by offering practical resources to help embed ESG practices authentically into how we all do business.”

Jo Dewar, Project ESG Lead

Interested in adding to our toolkit or joining our ESG mission?

The Payments Association’s ESG Working Group brings together thought-leaders on ESG from across our payments community to bring together helpful resources allowing the whole industry to better understand, and act on, the business imperative for having an Environmental, Social and Governance strategy. Our Working Group hopes to be a meaningful stepping-stone and accelerator to enable ESG to become business as usual for all members of The Payments Association and beyond.

Have you set up your Member account yet? If not, click here to do so.

Still not receiving your auto-login link?

Instead of using passwords, we e-mail you a link to log in to the site. This allows us to automatically verify you and apply member benefits based on your e-mail domain name.

Please click the button below which relates to the issue you’re having.

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.
