Our Story

Discouraged by the lack of global efforts to keep pace with the ever-growing urgency of climate change, ecolytiq cofounders Ulrich Pietsch and David Lais decided to encourage action by giving the power to the people through rethinking the role retail banking has to play in the fight against climate change.

The founders are a team of seasoned entrepreneurs with more than 50 years of experience in payment, banking, loyalty and scalable data analytics systems. This team consists of Ulrich Pietsch (CEO), David Lais (CPO), Mirko Kämpf (CTO), Frederic Westerberg (CSO), Friedrich Hubel (COO), and Richard Malley (CFO).

Realizing that climate change is one of the largest issues facing humanity, the founders are tapping into their wealth of experience to do their part in transforming the financial industry into a sustainability powerhouse.

ecolytiq is member of the Visa Fintech Partner Connect program, enabling banks to seamlessly implement their sustainability strategies using payment data.
