As the awareness of climate change grows and the willingness to take action increases, Mastercard launches the Mastercard Carbon Calculator. The Carbon Calculator is a result of Mastercard and Doconomy working together to develop a solution that will give card holders tools to measure and manage the CO2 impact of their spending. The Carbon Calculator is powered by the independently verified Åland Index.
New sustainability research of consumers from 24 countries reveals a rise in passion for the environment, as increasingly more individuals are resetting their views on consumption and CO2 impact. The study, commissioned by Mastercard, shows that 58% of adults across the world are more mindful of their environmental impact since the Covid-19 outbreak. And large proportion of adults (85%) are willing to take personal action to fight environmental challenges, signaling a transition to a more sustainable world. The study also shows that three in five people (62%) think it’s now more important than ever that companies and brands do more for the environment.
