With COP27 in full swing, Berlin startup ecolytiq has taken a bold step to partner with dedicated and ambitious financial institutions by offering its entire product suite for free for the first three years to those who commit to working with them by the end of COP27.
ecolytiq is looking to collaborate with financial institutions with at least one million retail customers to back up their words with action through integrating its entire product suite within the next six months. The catch? Financial institutions must commit before the end of the world’s largest climate conference, COP27, on Friday, the 18th of November 2022.
Consisting of three pillars, ecoAware, ecoEngage and ecoAction, ecolytiq’s Sustainability-as-a-Service® software encourages long-lasting behavioural change, offers impact offsetting and sustainable investing as tools for climate action. They equip banks with the digital features to respond to the climate crisis in an impactful way.
ecolytiq co-founder, David Lais commented: “Like many others around the world, we are watching COP27 with bated breath and a cautious hope. We see a lot of passion and ambition to make real progress in fighting climate change, but behind all the conversations a crucial element is lacking – action. Sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.”
“We need real commitment and swift action from all sectors – especially banking and finance. The question around climate action is no longer ‘if’, it’s ‘how’ and ‘when’. We are looking for banks who are just as committed as we are to innovation and a better future, because when it comes to the climate we have many things – but time is not one of them. So, we’re challenging the banking sector to put their money where their mouths are and work with us.”
ecolytiq is extending this offer to the first two front-runners, who embrace the future of banking with a display of real, swift action during COP27. As a climate tech start-up, ecolytiq is specialised in equipping banks around the world with the tools they need to future-proof their value propositions and educate their customers on climate action.
