Unlocking Economic Barriers and Opportunities For All
Enabling a more inclusive, participatory and sustainable global financial system is a truly collaborative endeavor. Ripple is proud to partner with mission-driven fintechs, leading universities, NGOs, foundations and social entrepreneurs to create greater economic fairness and opportunity for all.
Our current global financial system does not meet the needs of 1.7 billion unbanked people. Digital assets and distributed ledger technology (DLT) have the potential to transform how unbanked and underbanked populations access basic financial services and send and receive money across borders, making it more accessible, affordable and secure.
Accelerate global financial inclusion for unbanked and underbanked populations through blockchain and digital asset technology.

Ripple is Proud to Partner with Sustainability Leaders Across Sectors
Blockchain has a vital role to play in achieving a zero-net emissions energy future. Ripple is taking the lead to ensure fintech is part of the effort to build a sustainable world that is not only transformative for banks and consumers, but also beneficial for the planet.
