Manama, Bahrain / Dubai, UAE / London, UK: Fils, a pioneering force in climate-positive transactions, empowering businesses of all sizes to embed climate positivity into transactions using their APIs, is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with Aion, a leader in digital banking solutions. This groundbreaking collaboration aims to set new standards in sustainable finance, leveraging cutting-edge technology to drive meaningful change in the financial industry across the MENA region.

Leveraging the combined strengths of Aion’s technical proficiency and Fils's API-first platform, financial institutions will be able to seamlessly integrate multiple products and customised solutions that are focused on sustainability and climate action, helping to ensure substantial business value and user engagement.

Together Fils and Aion will work to deliver a range of initiatives for banking clients, including ESG scoring systems, sustainable investment platforms, and green financial products, designed to support sustainable economic growth and social welfare. These initiatives are expected to launch in the coming months, with both companies working closely to ensure their success.

"This partnership with Aion represents a pivotal step forward in our mission to help banks embed ESG values at the core of financial services," said Nameer Khan, CEO of Fils. "Together, we are poised to introduce innovative solutions that will empower consumers and businesses alike to make more informed, responsible financial decisions that are not only good for customers but for the planet as well. "

Ashar Nazim, Aion Group CEO, also expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating ‘Today we launch our ground-breaking Green APIs from Aion platform. People and businesses in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the larger MENA region can now conveniently spend, save and transact in a manner that is beautifully aligned to their ESG values. Joining forces with Fils will accelerate this momentum.”
