CEO Don Robert commented:
“A significant milestone over the last year was the evolution of, and investment in, our social innovation programme. It is a natural fit with our commitment to a sustainable model of growth, where social and commercial benefits are created side by side.
As we catalyse growth in emerging economies, we are playing a key role in lifting millions of people from poverty by using our unique assets to resolve major social issues such as indebtedness, financial exclusion and fraud.”
