Economic Access and Opportunity

Financial inclusion is a human right

Adoption of crypto and blockchain can help dramatically increase global economic participation, opportunity, and resilience for billions of under-banked and unbanked people.

From enabling low-cost and always-on remittances in emerging markets to building Central Bank Digital Currency platforms for governments working to increase financial inclusion, our global crypto solutions are underpinned with the democratizing power of blockchain technology. Together with our partners and customers, we are working to transform a global financial system to meet the ever-evolving, everyday needs of everyone, everywhere.

Sustainable crypto solutions can help achieve global climate goals

As co-founders and active members of the Crypto Climate Accord and WEF’s Crypto Impact and Sustainability Initiative, Ripple is committed to a low-carbon future for the crypto industry and global economy. The XRP Ledger is the world’s first major global carbon neutral blockchain, enabling sustainable crypto solutions and powering more efficient, scalable and dynamic carbon markets.

Ripple is on track to achieve carbon net zero by 2030 or sooner through reduced emissions, clean energy use, and large investments in innovative carbon removal projects.

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.

Academic Research and Development

Empowering tomorrow’s blockchain leaders today
