Atlanta, GA, Sept. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Atlanticus Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: ATLC), a technology-enabled consumer finance company,  today announced it is expanding its sustainability efforts by joining the IMPACT COLLECTIVE, a group of forward-thinking brands committed to making an immediate and positive environmental impact through the reduction of their carbon, plastic, water, and energy footprints.
