Mastercard Offers Expo 2020 Dubai Visitors the Opportunity to Contribute to our #PricelessPlanet

As the Official Payment Technology Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, Mastercard will be powering the mega-event’s payments and ticketing platform and offering visitors an opportunity to join the fight against climate change. When purchasing tickets, visitors to the Expo 2020 Dubai website will now be able to donate to Mastercard’s Priceless Planet Coalition upon checkout as an add-on feature. Supported by strategic partners including Expo 2020 Dubai, Emirates NBD and Network International, the Priceless Planet Coalition aims to restore 100 million trees globally by 2025.  Together, the coalition aims to unite businesses, governments and consumers in climate action, engaging Expo visitors directly and enabling them to easily take action for the planet. Within the UAE, the donations will be allocated towards restoring mangrove trees across the country’s natural ecosystems. Effective mangrove restoration strategies can support the long-term resilience of coastal ecosystems that in turn provide numerous benefits to people, such as the recovery of declining fish stocks, improving water quality, conserving cultural identity, as well as offering opportunities for eco-tourism. With consumers in the region becoming more willing to take personal action to combat environmental and sustainability issues, the global technology leader aims to bring the issue of climate change at the forefront
