STOCKHOLM, April 7, 2022 — The objective is to measure, educate and engage Swiss consumers within climate action and to support the user in making more conscious lifestyle choices. Viseca is the first payment services company in Switzerland to offer carbon footprint measurements using Åland Index.
The “Walter Finance” app was developed to pilot and test new services in cooperation with select customers from Viseca and partner banks. The app displays weekly spending and helps define spending targets, allowing users to make more sustainable purchasing decisions thus having an even better overview of their spending. Åland index will be integrated within the app to automatically provide CO₂e calculations to drive positive change.
“We are very excited to see this development as a first to market in Switzerland. As the movement of conscious consumers rapidly grow I’m proud to see Doconomy support Viseca in the ambition to enable greater transparency and actionable insights.”
Mathias Wikström, CEO and Co-Founder of Doconomy
“We all have to do our part to use our natural resources responsibly, mindful of the very small part a card transaction can do in the big picture of climate action and that shopping uses resources. By integrating Åland Index in our app, we want to give Swiss consumers a tool, so they can make informed decisions about their spending behavior.”
Bedrija Hamza, Senior InnoTech Lead at Viseca Payment Services SA.
