Mastercard Accelerates Its Net Zero Timeline To 2040 - Quick Facts

Mastercard (MA) announced an acceleration of its net zero timeline to 2040 from 2050. The company said it targets to encourage tangible action by people who use its cards across the globe. This includes helping banks offer their consumers digital tools, such as the Mastercard Carbon Calculator, that encourage climate-conscious choices, and cards made from more sustainable materials.
