The Åland Index was developed in 2016 and is taken to a broader market by Swedish impact tech pioneer Doconomy.

'Covid-19 inspires change in consumers' sustainable behaviour. Moreover, environmental concerns keep rising steeply. More and more people around the world are willing to consume with less of a carbon footprint. Hence, we are honoured to be the first sustainability advisory firm authorized by Doconomy to introduce the Åland Index to Hong Kong and Mainland China. We believe that this Index can be applied to a variety of financial institutions with payment systems, as it uses a merchant code of the payment system to quantify the carbon footprint', said Simon Mak, Co-founder and CEO of Ascent Partners and also the former CEO of Friends of the Earth (HK).
