November 28th 2022: Cogo, and the UK’s greener digital bank, Tandem, join forces in a new partnership that will help Tandem’s customers discover Cogo to manage the carbon footprint of their spending.
Emma Kisby, EMEA CEO of Cogo says, “Partnering with a bank so in tune with our own company values makes this an especially exciting opportunity. Tandem Bank is challenging how consumers think about finances, appealing to the next generation of greener banking customers. By offering Cogo on the marketplace, retail customers from Tandem will be able to download our Cogo app to measure, understand and reduce their carbon footprint based on where and how they spend money, helping to tackle the climate crisis.”
The partnership, which launches today, 28th November, is set to evolve in 2023 with plans for integrating Cogo's carbon footprint technology directly into the Tandem banking app.
Last month, Cogo research found that over 8 in 10 UK mobile banking users want to know about the environmental impact of their spending decisions. This proves that customers have good intentions when it comes to climate positive finance, but they need help identifying where they can make the biggest differences. By making it easier for customers to access data on the carbon impact of every purchase, banking customers are more likely to start making small changes every day that help to protect our planet.
Georgina Whalley, Tandem’s Chief Impact and Marketing Officer, says, “We’re committed to supporting the UK in banking for a greener future. The Tandem Marketplace offers a dedicated hub for consumers to start their green journey with practical advice, information and tools to help them both save money and save the planet. Cogo joining the Marketplace is an exciting next step allowing customers to have a clearer understanding of their own carbon footprint. We’re delighted Cogo has joined and look forward to working with them to help fight the climate crisis.”
The Tandem Marketplace can be accessed at www.tandem.co.uk/marketplace.
People are more motivated by sustainability impact than financial savings when it comes to making greener lifestyle choices, according to new behavioural research by carbon footprint management experts, Cogo.
Cogo is partnering with Eliq - the experts in making sense of energy data - to inform and support banks and their customers as they navigate the challenges faced by climate change and the cost of living and energy crises.
Global carbon footprint management fintech, Cogo, today announced that its carbon footprint management software is now listed on AWS Marketplace, a digital catalogue with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
