London Transport Museum has announced Mastercard as the latest partner to support its bid to raise climate change awareness.
The payments giant is one of four businesses supporting London Transport Museum’s Climate Crossroads programme, alongside Mott MacDonald, Cubic Transportation Systems and Sopra Steria.
The programme explores the technology, skills and jobs that are and will be required to build sustainable cities and transport.
A new interactive ‘Green Journeys’ installation alongside hands-on workshops will open during the summer holidays, both of which are hoped to demonstrate the role transport can play in making the capital more sustainable.
As part of its partnership, London Transport Museum will restore 5,000 trees through the Priceless Planet Coalition, Mastercard’s collaborative corporate sustainability effort which aims to restore 100 million trees by 2025.
Sam Mullins OBE, Director, London Transport Museum, said: “Visitors will discover how public transport makes cities more sustainable, how engineers are creating new green technology and some of the small actions we can each take to make a difference.”
Nigel Thomson, Director of Merchant Marketing & Partnerships at Mastercard, said the company plans to launch a campaign “across a range of in-museum and digital channels which we’re sure will engage visitors to the museum as they support this collective effort to mitigate climate change.”
