New bank card calculates the environmental impact of every purchase…
You know how much your purchases cost in monetary terms, but how much do they cost the planet? Sign up for a DO credit card and it’s easy to make the right choices. Developed by Swedish fintech Doconomy, the DO card tracks the carbon footprint of everything you buy.
For every purchase you make, the environmental impact is logged by the DO app. Using data drawn from Mastercard, KPMG and other sources, the system lets you know the amount of CO2 it’s cost, and the amount of cash you should donate to charities to offset the damage. When you see the impact you’re having, the idea is, you’ll change the choices you make.
The DO card is currently available through Finland’s Åland Bank and customers who’ve signed up to the scheme receive a carbon statement every month. Naturally, the card itself is made of bio-sourced material rather than plastic, and printed using air ink.
It’s all about making your greenbacks, greener.
