At a conference dedicated to the creation of the National ESG Alliance of the leading companies of the Russian market, Sberbank Chairman of the Board German Gref said that the rejection of plastic bank cards occurs naturally and what will happen to them in the future.
Digital maps have already become a popular tool. NFC and other contactless payment methods are also gaining popularity. Most likely, thanks to such payments in the coming years, the emission will decrease to a minimum
He also indicated that the production of “green” plastic is now starting. Thus, even if the cards are still issued, it will be with the use of green technologies.
The goal of the ESG Alliance will be to help transition to a sustainable model of economic development that will preserve nature, support the well-being of society and the long-term prosperity of business.
