Doconomy together with the UNFCCC launched the Lifestyle Calculator at COP26 last year to help individuals worldwide understand how their lifestyle affects the climate. With the service, the world got an easy-to-use tool that empowers everyone to take climate action.
Since The Lifestyle Calculator was released, it has reached over 120 countries. Based on this great traction, Doconomy is now ready to level up the service to offer consumers an even more intuitive and fast way to measure their impact – and hopefully encourage individuals to make lifestyle changes based on their findings.
The Lifestyle Calculator 2.0 will bring the following updates:
More user-friendly and precise questions
In a busy world, people can now better engage. Users can now faster get through the questionnaire, and it also allows for in-depth questions. The user answers a dozen of overarching questions and can then continue to answer more detailed questions after getting a first impression.
More tips & tricks
The tips and tricks are tailor-made and have increased from 50 to 100, to give users a better understanding of how to act upon their findings.
The service will get a completely new design that aligns with the rest of the Doconomy ecosystem. Users can also see the results breakdown in categories; home, food, transportation, and shopping visualized in relation to the Paris agreement. This gives users a reference to their lifestyle footprint from a global perspective.
The Lifestyle Calculator was developed to fill a gap. While there is plenty of data to measure the impact of different activities, until now it has been hard for consumers to access that data in one place. The service aims to offer consumers an intuitive, fast way to measure their impact – and hopefully make lifestyle changes based upon their findings. These changes may seem small, but they all add up to make a big difference.
