Ajay Banga, Chief Executive Officer at Mastercard: “What the pandemic has shown us is that our lives are deeply interconnected. It has also laid bare painful truths about just how vulnerable we really are when it comes to climate change, social inequalities, and economic exclusion. Today’s CEOs have made commitments to reverse the harmful effects of climate change, deliver opportunities for all and drive inclusive sustainable economic growth. But delivering on these commitments is up to all of us – partnerships and collaborations offer the chance to bring our strengths together using innovative technology to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. And a resilient rebuild will only be achievable if we can close the gap between those who have access to digital technologies and those who do not. We must make the digital economy work for everyone, everywhere.”
