Fintech during COP26
Aspiration offers an alternative for climate-focused consumers
As all eyes turn to Glasgow this month, I thought it timely to discuss one company’s efforts to “leave your bank, save the planet,” as their marketing team heeds you to do. Founded in 2013, Aspiration offers green financial services to cut out institutions that fund fossil fuel projects.
Valued at $2.3B, Aspiration’s financial offerings range from retail banking and credit cards to sustainable impact services for enterprise levels. This bottom up approach via their retail banking coupled with enterprise, top-down green consulting is an excellent approach to capture the sustainability market.
While some activists may not see this as drastic enough, Aspiration’s goals are certainly a welcome change of pace.
