Computop Partners with The Camden Clean Air Initiative as Earthfest Kicks Off

Computop, the international payment service provider (PSP), has announced that it is partnering with The Camden Clean Air Initiative this year.  

The initiative is a not-for-profit action group that aims to reduce air pollution across the London Borough of Camden and will be expanding to become The London Clean Air Initiative later in 2024.

The partnership will kick off on April 18th to coincide with EarthFest, the flagship sustainability event organised by The Camden Clean Air Initiative. The four-day event which is designed to ignite ideas and inspire change takes place in Kings Cross and combines presentations, interactive demonstrations and workshops with live music and entertainment.

Computop, which has an employee climate group ‘Green Payment People’, is a regular contributor to ‘Time for Climate Action’ one of the many events that mark Earth Day every year and connect a global audience in support of environmental protection. As part of Leaders for Climate Action, the company also takes stock of its own emissions and has been involved in several projects designed to help emerging economies find sustainable solutions that reduce emissions.

In addition, the company offers a number of environmentally conscious solutions, including Pay to Drive, which makes it easy for drivers of electric vehicles to pay for charging, and delivers payment processing for contactless mobility services such as trains, trams and buses. These services and solutions provide a natural synergy with the aims of the Camden Clean Air Initiative.

“We are delighted to be able to work together with The Camden Clean Air Initiative, a group who share our values of working towards a better environment in our urban landscapes,” said Philip Plambeck, Managing Director UK at Computop. “Our experience in managing payments for mobility and transport providers means Computop is ideally placed to support businesses in commercialising environmentally friendly business models”

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Computop,” said Georgina McGivern, Co-Founder of The Camden Clean Air Initiative. “Together, we are forging a path towards cleaner air and a sustainable future for Camden and beyond. By combining our work in environmental advocacy with Computop’s commitment to cutting-edge technology, we aim to drive meaningful change and inspire others to join us in the fight for cleaner air and a healthier planet. We could not do the work we do without the support of corporates like Computop and we are excited to have them with us as we grow.”
