STOCKHOLM/TOKYO, August 2, 2022 — The 2030 Calculator measures the carbon footprint of products based on their emissions from production and transport to the point of sale.
Earth hacks Marché is organized by Earth hacks, a co-created platform by Hakuhodo’s new business development organization, Mirai no Jigyoshitsu, and Mitsui & Co. The event aimed to promote decarbonization through the actions of individual consumers.

The Marché highlighted sustainable products made from waste materials and substandard food materials that would otherwise be discarded. By showing the environmental values of sustainable products clearly, the event aimed to offer a new choice for consumers that contributes to decarbonization.
Doconomy’s booth at the event introduced visitors to the Lifestyle Calculator 2.0 experience, which allowed users to measure their emissions rendered by their daily activities. Doconomy also presented the Aland Index, the globally leading digital tool that translates financial transactions into CO₂ impact. The team helped visitors reflect on their consumption behavior and how they contribute to climate change.
In March 2022, Doconomy opened its first overseas office in Tokyo and in June, it introduced Aland Index for SAISON CARD Digital, the first credit card in Japan that allows users to check their CO₂ emissions based on their credit card transactions. Doconomy currently look forward to expanding its collaborations with other financial institutions and brands in Japan.
Tokyo is today one of the world’s most dynamic green finance markets, and the Japanese government is promoting climate change initiative to meet its goal of a 46% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
“The ambitious Japanese market with a high level of design integrity and accelerating climate interest has been an inspiration to the Doconomy team since the start. Working alongside our passionate and talented local partners like Mitsui has further reinforced our perspective and we are immensely proud to open in Tokyo, our first office outside of Sweden. We welcome all banks with local presence to benefit from our combination of local presence and global market leading insights.”
