This is the first step in the company’s strategy to provide a comprehensive set of sustainable banking services
equensWorldline SE, a subsidiary of Worldline has entered into a partnership with ecolytiq, a Berlin-based impact fintech that offers a Sustainability-as-a-ServiceⓇ solution.
This solution is based on the use of payment transaction data and is claimed to positively influence banking customers’ behaviour by raising awareness around their environmental footprint.
According to the press release, equensWorldline strives to offer banks and other financial organisations the opportunity to provide additional sustainability-oriented services to their clients, such as personalised sustainability advice based on financial data, among other offerings.
One of the use cases that equensWorldline has identified to leverage the banking data made available thanks to PSD2 regulation was how to best offer clients suitable solutions and additional value to help combatting climate change.
equensWorldline’s Open Banking platform provides access to data from more than 3000 banks in 18 countries across Europe. In order to expand their portfolio and meet market demand, equensWorldline will offer this carbon footprint calculation service in collaboration with ecolytiq.
