Crédit Agricole Payment Services tests carbon footprint measurements of credit card purchases

Together with Crédit Agricole Payment Services (CAPS) we have entered into a collaboration which aims to enable climate action at every payment. With a strong commitment to the Crédit Agricole Group’s CSR approach, CAPS reached out to work on a solution to provide customers, via a dedicated application, with an estimate of the carbon footprint of every purchase made. The functionality connects to the customers’ bank card, thanks to the Åland Index impact calculation methodology.

Together with CAPS we have developed a first service which will be tested by a panel of customers. The objective of this exploration is to verify the appetite of French customers for this service and to assess its potential for use in France.

Engaging climate action tools for users through Applied Behavioral Science

At Doconomy we want to go beyond engagement. Our ambition is to drive behavioral change and incentivize a sustainable lifestyle for all. We believe features alone don’t change behavior. What does, is a framework underpinned by human-centered design, behavioral insights followed by the craft of intentional interventions, and the ability to learn and iterate.

That is why we are happy to have Samuel Salzer joining Doconomy as a Behavioral Designer. His expertise will further accelerate Doconomy’s capabilities going forward. Samuel has worked with numerous organizations, applying behavioral insights to fuel habit formation and digital behavior change. He’s here to help all users by making our products and services even better using the leading tools and latest insights from Applied Behavioral Science.

Welcome Samuel!
