change for good https://www.emlpayments.com/sei/ will play a crucial role in EML’s strategic blueprint for the evolution of sustainable digital, mobile and virtual payments. The removal of 25 million pieces of plastic from Financial Technology will give the company’s customers and consumers a broader selection of the latest alternative eco-solution payment options.

Social impact is just as much a priority as business impact. At the end of the day, reducing plastic is the right thing to do, people expect us to do it and as an employer, people are attracted to great companies that care about the future of our planet as much as the future of payments,” commented Tom Cregan, EML’s Managing Director & Group CEO.

Remaining true to our values on this journey, the global team is focused on leading by example with this achievable social thrive and behavioural change movement.
