Mastercard clients will be able to track their carbon impact according to the purchases
Doconomy and Mastercard extended their joint effort to combat climate change. The new arrangement brings the ability for any Mastercard issuer to offer their cardholder the ability to track and understand their carbon footprint based on purchases made. The first bank in the US and Nordea announced to join The Bank of Åland in allowing clients to discover and measure their CO2 footprint through the Åland Index.
As a part of the collaboration, Mastercard invested in Doconomy for the further expansion of the tracking. What is more, it will offset the platform to additional markets.
The Åland Index is a cloud-based software service, allowing to track the CO2 emission of each transaction. It connects every transaction category and how it affects the planet. Clients can receive an independent benchmark climate index based upon leading financial data.
