Transaction-based CO₂ calculations
The Carbon Footprint Manager is an add-on module for the Personal Finance Manager (PFM). It analyses all transaction data and calculates the corresponding carbon footprint (key figure: kilograms of CO₂ emissions in relation to the transaction amount in CHF). It calculates an individual’s carbon footprint based on transactions and sets their personal CO₂ consumption in relation to the Swiss average.
High-quality Swiss climate data
Understanding and improving CO₂ consumption
We use more than 90 data sources and methods to calculate an individual’s CO₂ footprint. CO₂ consumption can be broken down by month or year and is automatically assigned to one of the following categories: Food, Home, Travel & Transport, Shopping, and Health & Leisure.
Gamification & Education
With tips and gamification elements that are constantly being expanded, concrete recommendations for reducing your footprint are suggested that can be saved and directly implemented by your customers.
Thanks to the Carbon Footprint Manager in the PFM, you increase engagement on digital channels, address sustainable target groups, and stand out from other banks. There are additional cross-selling opportunities by recommending the bank’s sustainable products.

Personalised tips with gamification elements to lowering CO₂ emissions
Achieve sustainability goals with sustainable budgets and cross-sell to the bank’s sustainable products
In everyday practice
Consumers want to act, shop, and live in a more sustainable manner. One particularly effective approach is for banks to support their customers in taking action against climate change themselves.
With the CO₂ Footprint Manager, you pick up your customers exactly where they are, namely in their private account that reflects their own consumption.
As a solid foundation
The CO₂ calculations are based on Swiss climate data. The calculated CO₂ results serve as a solid foundation for an effective assessment of one’s own CO₂ consumption.
The Swiss database allows users to see how their carbon footprint compares to the Swiss average. Positive feedback helps with the self-assessment and encourages users to reduce their personal emissions in the long term.
For additional products
The Carbon Footprint Manager enables customers to implement their sustainability goals in a concrete way within the framework of online banking or the PFM. For example, this is done by allowing users to
- create a budget to better control expenditure and emissions
- set up a saving space to reduce the cost of a sustainable purchase
- invest sustainably by placing a link to an appropriate bank’s investment page
Analyse the carbon footprint of third-party banks
Third-party accounts at third-party banks can also be integrated, provided that the multibanking option is used by the respective bank.
The transactions are automatically divided into the carbon footprint categories Food, Home, Travel & Transport, Shopping, and Health & Leisure and are also aggregated via the third-party accounts.
