London-based fintech startup YAYZY has launched a new app that could revolutionise people's motivation and ability to help tackle the environmental impact of their carbon footprint. The app encourages users to compensate for their emissions via carbon offsetting.
Users will be provided with data showing their carbon footprint and its environmental impact. For example, if you buy a coffee and get to know the climate change caused by the same via the YAYZY, you can just tap on the button on your phone to make up for the same.
Mankaran Ahluwalia, cofounder and CEO of YAYZY said, “COVID lockdown gave us a rare glimpse of what a low carbon future could look like as NASA satellite images revealed massive drops in carbon pollution and beautiful clear skies. While emissions have gradually risen as lockdown eases, YAYZY wants to put us all in the driver’s seat to control our own environmental impact and collectively work together in a journey to keep carbon emissions below the 2-degree target.”
The app also offers tips on how to reduce carbon footprint and help users find eco-friendly retailers near them. It also offers insights into lifestyle choices that have the highest environmental impact.
