How do you calculate my carbon footprint?
Whenever you make a payment using your bunq account, you get insights on the carbon footprint of your purchase. To calculate this carbon footprint, we consider the country in which you made the payment, the payment category (e.g. Groceries, Travel, Fashion), the merchant, and how much you spent. To give you the most accurate insights, our method draws from an enormous amount of statistical data. Of course, each and every transaction is unique and the carbon footprint you see in the app will not be 100% accurate. Instead it’s intended as a reliable estimate that helps you make informed decisions on how to live more sustainably.
