Earthchain helps Kani Payments clients to track carbon footprints
By Gloria Methri
Global payments reporting specialist Kani Payments has partnered with Earthchain to enable its clients to show their customers the real-time carbon footprint associated with every purchase they make at checkout.
By enhancing its data reconciliation platform with Earthchain’s business intelligence insights, Kani Payments will help its payments and FinTech clients to track the climate impact of their purchases. The partners will also enable merchants and payment processors to demonstrate their commitment to climate change and fund carbon-conscious projects at scale.
Earthchain’s Carbon Intelligence platform and APIs enable businesses to support decarbonisation projects around the world and embed emissions insights and climate contributions into their products and services. Financial services institutions, FinTechs, and payments companies can give customers the insights to identify where they can make the most effective changes to purchase more sustainably.
Aaron Holmes, Founder, and CEO of Kani Payments, said, “By integrating Earthchain’s unique carbon intelligence capabilities into our platform, we are empowering our clients to take proactive climate action. This partnership demonstrates that Kani Payments is prioritising tangible business intelligence insights that align with global climate action targets. By working together with Earthchain, Kani Payments can take proactive strides to achieve our own ESG goals as well as encourage our climate-aware clients, including payments companies, neobanks, and processors, to do the same for their customers.”
Mike Barlow, Co-Founder and Head of Growth at Earthchain, said, “Our ultimate goal is to educate FinTechs and financial institutions to help change consumer behaviour and reduce the impact businesses have on the environment. This partnership with Kani Payments is the next step on our journey, and we are delighted to be able to work with Aaron and the team to create a unique carbon reduction tool based on their needs. Earthchain tailors its integrations to each of our client’s needs, including the ability to provide recommendations based on online purchasing history, advice on how they can reduce their carbon footprint as consumers or as an organisation, and real-time tracking of their impact and climate project portfolios.”
