Sustainability and what the Kani – Earthchain partnership entails

Based on the press release information, by upgrading its data reconciliation platform with Earthchain’s carbon-conscious business intelligence insights, Kani Payments is looking to assist its payments and fintech clients with tapping into the increasing demand from consumers to track their climate impact of their purchases. The companies are set to 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 globally and embed emissions insights and climate contributions into their products and services, while concomitantly reporting on their collective impact. Furthermore, financial services institutions, fintechs, and payments companies can offer customers the insights to identify where the most effective changes can be made to purchase in a more sustainable way.
