Since Finastra was founded in 2017, we have believed in ‘doing well by doing good.’ 

This belief and purpose has never been stronger and more necessary as we collectively navigate unprecedented challenges together with our stakeholders – such as the climate crisis, COVID-19, the ever-increasing cyber threat landscape and the fight for racial equality and social equity.

Our social impact achievements have already directly impacted over 1.7 million people and over 10 million people indirectly through our philanthropic grants but our ambition for Finastra ESG is bolder.

Creating impact

To continue creating impact and achieve our ambitions, we have added two new imperatives to our ESG value creation strategy. The first is to be a high-performing company in ESG and the second is to embed ESG value creation into our solutions.

To enable this our ESG, Purpose & Impact strategy is aligned to four key pillars of Planet, Prosperity, People and Principles of Governance from the WEF Stakeholder Capitalism Framework all with their own ambitious commitments.
