Why ekko

Tomorrow is here and we’re
getting on with it

To tackle the environmental challenges at the speed and scale needed, it’s all hands on deck. And that includes business. People and governments expect it, and shareholders demand it—particularly in the payments and finance space, which touches close to everything we do as a society.

What we do

Embedding sustainability in banking and payments 

ekko helps businesses and their customers join hands as a force for good. From apps to checkout experiences, we embed frictionless sustainability solutions into any payment transaction or interaction, turning our customers’ products into unique new propositions, for many in less than a working week.
