ekko forms board of advisers to deliver sustainable growth

Greentech ekko has formed a board of advisers to deliver sustainable growth. 

The board features experts in climate change, technology and financial services, including Majda Dabaghi, Barney Harrison, Stephen Garland, John Sills, Kimberley Waldron, and Tom Greenwood. 

The advisers will add a “wealth of knowledge and expert insights” to support the company’s business development and growth. 

They will provide strategic input to the ekko team and contribute to dedicated working groups in their areas of expertise.

For consumers, ekko offers a debit card with carbon tracking and offsetting.

Earlier this year, the greentech opened its technology to banks and payment providers with an API that offers the same sustainable solutions and incentives.  

Speaking on the company’s new board of advisers, Oli Cook, chief executive officer and co-founder of ekko, said: “It’s our belief that to have the greatest impact at the greatest scale, we need to collaborate together. 

“Now, with the guidance of our handpicked and massively talented board of advisers, we’re bringing some of the smartest minds in their fields to the table to work with us on creating impact across our business.” 

Dabaghi said: “I believe that every business has a responsibility to tackle climate change, and ekko’s award-winning solutions will help businesses take positive steps in this regard. 

“As an adviser, I will draw on my experience in supporting businesses to take climate action and driving international initiatives that support the [UN’s] Sustainable Development Goals to help ekko maximise their positive impact in collaboration with SMEs, multinationals and climate leaders around the world.” 

Discussing his role on the board, Garland, a serial entrepreneur, said: “Investing my time in such impactful climate initiatives holds immense importance, as it is clear that our present choices are moulding the world of tomorrow.  

“ekko’s unwavering commitment to protecting our planet, driving sustainable progress, and creating a better future makes me wholeheartedly dedicated to supporting their journey and amplifying their influence.”
