Meniga’s transaction-based carbon footprint calculator has been approved by EY


Carbon Insight, the underlying index by Meniga innovative green banking solution, has been reviewed by EY; one of the “Big-4” accounting and professional services firms.

Following the limited assurance, EY drew a conclusion regarding the reliability, transparency and adequacy of the methodology for estimating the carbon value of banking transactions.

With the conclusion of EY, Meniga can continue to strengthen its green banking product offering, strengthening the credibility of the carbon index and establishing it as a possible benchmark for carbon footprint measurement tools.

Meniga’s Carbon Index became the first such solution to receive such a review, highlighting Meniga as the established provider of carbon footprint solutions.

According to EY Future Consumption Index, there is a growing public appetite for sustainable development, and it is up to companies to meet such demand through the products and services they provide.

Financial services organizations are no exception to this rule – and many banks recognize the unique opportunity and tangible business value that green banking solutions can bring to meet the needs of the rapidly growing segment of carbon-conscious consumers.

According to a recent survey by Meniga, 62% of European consumers want their bank to provide them with an overview of their carbon footprint.
