IDEMIA Secure Transactions has introduced the GREENPAY Wallet, a new digital solution aimed at promoting regenerative sustainability in the banking sector. This announcement comes just ahead of World Environment Day on June 5, 2024.

The GREENPAY Wallet is an important step in IDEMIA Secure Transactions’ broader corporate social responsibility strategy.

It enables banks and their customers to contribute to global nature restoration and social projects.

The solution features a software component that allows consumers to make financial contributions to NGO projects through their mobile banking apps, and a digital platform that allows financial institutions to select and monitor impactful projects.

This initiative builds on IDEMIA’s GREENPAY offering launched in 2020, which initially focused on sustainable bank cards made from recycled PVC.

IDEMIA said it ensures that every project within the GREENPAY Wallet aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and meets strict standards for reliability and impact.

The projects are carefully selected and monitored through regular reports.
