Our guidance and cooperation gave Swedish fintech Doconomy a technological product that it could offer in other territories: the 2030 Calculator. Doconomy knew that it needed to have its carbon impact message heard outside of Sweden – and it partnered with Vacuumlabs to achieve just that.
By overcoming a major technical challenge, Vacuumlabs helped Doconomy take that vital first step in not only helping its users reduce their carbon footprint, but also building Doconomy's brand awareness of its mission on a global scale.

Once you find a partner that fully understands your needs, and your ambitions, and the challenges ahead – and is committed to addressing them together with you – you should really cling on to that partner. Because that partnership has tremendous value, for your current and for your next challenges.
We realized that Doconomy already had a powerful and valuable asset – the algorithm that is used to determine the carbon impact of purchases made. We suggested that we use this as the basis for creating a new, standalone product – a version of the calculator that can determine the carbon impact of anyone interested in climate change, regardless of their location.
Building on that idea, a small three-person team of Vacuumlabs engineers worked together to create the 2030 Calculator. Launched initially as a website, this allowed for the collection of highly-granular data – allowing product brands and material suppliers to understand the carbon footprint of the products and materials they produce, as well as providing the transparency that would allow consumers to make informed consumption choices.
Creating a standalone 2030 Calculator offers another significant benefit: it opens the door to various consumer and whitelabel apps for a huge variety of different use cases. As part of the Planet Loyalty initiative within Doconomy, we can also see the potential for a wide range of carbon offsetting and e-commerce integrations. We’re really looking forward to working with Doconomy on building out a whole suite of interesting products and services.
Without the skillsets and the capabilities of Vacuumlabs, we wouldn’t be in such a good place as we are now. So we are extremely grateful for the collaboration, and we are super excited about what’s to come.
