How does it work?

Consumers purchase goods and services with their bank cards. Svalna’s API fetches transaction data from the bank. Our scientifically-based technology analyses the data, categorizes the transactions, and calculates the emissions in carbon dioxide equivalents for every single transaction. A short lifestyle survey with key questions can be used to finetune the estimates. The results are then returned to your service, through our API, where they can be shown to your customers.

Technical specifications

Our technology for measuring the climate impact can be integrated into your service through our API in order to estimate the greenhouse gas emissions associated with every single bank transaction. The API can be provided either as a public web resource or in a private setting. The entire system, or parts of it, can be run on your premises (server, emission model, databases, etc).

How are the emissions calculated?

All purchases are categorized depending on where the purchases were made. Impacts from shopping are calculated by multiplying the purchase value by the emission factor of the corresponding purchasing category. The emission factors are based on Statistics Sweden’s environmental accounts and have been calculated using environmentally-extended multi-regional input-output analysis. The estimates can be finetuned using a short lifestyle survey in combination with individually adjusted emission factors from multiple public data sources. The calculation methodology is based on scientific research and has been peer-reviewed for the ultimate level of transparency and credibility.
