Adyen has announced the launch of Planet, the company’s latest addition to its Impact product suite.

The tool allows Adyen’s merchants to offer their shoppers to offset the carbon footprint of their purchases at the end of the checkout process.

This optional feature, which can be implemented at no additional cost to the merchant, directly supports climate action projects (e.g. reforestation or renewable energy).

In order to ensure the data quality of emissions per purchase calculated, Adyen partnered with South Pole to build its own greenhouse gas emissions calculator.

Taking responsibility for our environmental footprint is part of our license to operate in today’s society. To go further than that we built Planet, a feature that leverages our technology to help our merchants support environmental sustainability projects. By joining forces with our merchants, we can generate positive environmental impact at scale
Ingo Uytdehaage, CFO of Adyen
