An innovative solution that can be readily integrated into digital banking apps or any platform that uses Open Banking services in order to engage and reward users to:
Measure: Calculate the environmental impact of every transaction.
Learn & Act: Equip users with educational content to reinforce positive consumption behaviors and challenge users through sustainable missions and challenges.
Reduce: Offer progression analytics, allowing users to track and improve their carbon footprints.
Save: Build financial resilience and wellbeing to enable further continuous climate action
This partnership positions AWorld and Doconomy at the forefront of sustainable fintech, shaping a compelling added value for banks aiming to enhance their platforms with innovative sustainability features for all clients and to lead the way in promoting change and supporting a cause that will increasingly be central and imposed by EU regulations.
