Greater sustainability through innovation

Innovation paves the way for sustainable banking. We’re always looking for innovative solutions that have a positive impact on society and the environment. One example is our CO2 calculator that allows our customers to view and influence their carbon footprint.

CO2 calculator from PostFinance

PostFinance’s CO2 calculator provides customers with a tool that allows them to view the carbon footprint produced by their personal consumption. As individuals we can exert great leverage by changing our consumption patterns to live more sustainable lives. And that’s exactly where the CO2 calculator comes into its own. Your carbon footprint is calculated by monitoring your daily consumption based on your card transactions and enables comparison with other PostFinance customers.
