LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Experian, the global information services company, has today published two global reports reflecting its commitment to creating a better tomorrow for people and organisations around the world.
With a third of the global adult population lacking access to basic financial services, it’s vital that firms such as Experian recognise their responsibility to help. Add to this the threat of inflation and increased economic pressures for households across the globe, Experian’s mission to help people improve their financial health is more important now than ever.
In the Improving Financial Health Report, Experian demonstrates how it can improve the financial health of millions of people around the world, through a combination of its core products, social innovation and community investments.
Over 134 million consumers use Experian’s free consumer platform, giving them access to online services such as CreditExpert in the UK, Credit Tracker in the USA and Serasa Free Score in Brazil which can allow them to manage and improve their credit score. This is in addition to Experian Go – a consumer service launched this year which promotes financial inclusion and has helped over ‘credit invisible’ consumers to build their credit profiles.
Since establishing its United for Financial Health programme two years ago, Experian and its NGO partners have connected with 87 million people. They are well on track to reach the target of 100 million by 2024.
Experian’s investments into social innovation products, supporting employee-led ideas designed to positively impact society, have now reached 82 million people since 2013, and Experian employees volunteered almost 25,000 hours of their time in their local communities in the last 12 months.
More information about Experian’s Environmental, Social and Governance goals can be found in its Annual Report.
Also published today is Experian’s second-ever global Diversity Equity and Inclusion Report, a deep-dive into its approach to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
