Naspers’ businesses are low carbon intense as they are underpinned by digital transition which is the future of the green economy. For example, there are a billion unbanked people in the world and if we had to bring these unbanked people onto the financial grid via traditional brick and mortar, old style financial services it would be devastating for the environment. By bringing them onto the grid via digital services we are able to reduce the impact on the environment of the delivery part of the service and reduce the environmental impact of every end consumer that is able to access their financial needs online. Prajna Khanna, Global Head of Sustainability - Vice President at Prosus Group and Naspers Limited, at COP27.
