Every transaction counts


Everything we do leaves a mark on our planet. Travel, shopping, energy consumption – all this has an environmental impact. If we know the consequences of our decisions, it’s easier to make a change.

The carbon footprint represents how much emissions and greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere. The higher the footprint, the higher the burden on our planet and the rate of climate change.

And that’s why we’re introducing the display of estimated carbon footprint of purchases made by card in the Tatra banka mobile app. So that we all contribute to positive changes together.

How does it work?

When you pay by card, we will show the estimated carbon footprint in the Tatra banka mobile app.

We will show you the carbon footprint calculation in CO2 equivalents. This is the estimated mass of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases such as methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone.

There is only one way to pay by card, and there is only one way to calculate the carbon footprint. We don’t know the contents of your shopping cart, so we base the calculation on the category of merchant where you purchased.

The app also includes tips for more sustainable purchases and interesting information with each transaction.

The carbon footprint display is for your information only and has a purely educational character. We don’t process or evaluate the calculation at all.

We cooperate with ecolytiq GmbH and Visa to measure the carbon footprint.

Our habits have an impact on the life around us. For this impact to be as positive as possible, you must start with yourself. Even a small change in your daily routine can have a big impact on our blue planet.
