In confirming a link with UK-based ekko, PPS has strengthened its commitment to sustainable payments. 

Through the connection, the firm has expanded its offering with a climate-friendly debit card app, which deepens the consumers’ ability to fight climate change. 

Ray Brash, Chief Executive Officer at PPS, said: “As a leading driver of innovation in fintech and paytech across Europe we are increasingly committed to helping the industry become a leader in sustainability. Utilising our platform, access to networks and expert knowledge within the PPS team, together we’ve built a payments infrastructure which will help people to do something for the environment.”

It comes as ekko continues with its agenda of ensuring its customers can deliver a positive impact on the planet while engaging in routine actions like shopping, banking, and paying bills. 

Oli Cook, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder at ekko added on the collaboration and continued focus on sustainability: “We knew that PPS offered industry-leading technology, have enormous credibility in the space, and could deliver at pace in line with our goals. 

“As part of a truly collaborative project, we were able to transfer from our originally appointed issuer processing partner and completed all technical and regulatory tasks in less than 12 weeks. 

“With the product now live, we look forward to building on our partnership with PPS and helping to support the growing trend of green finance, more informed purchasing decisions, and towards a more sustainable future.”
