"The digital age has given us access to products and services from all over the world. This reality is also a cause for environmental concern, however. Banx encourages people to shop locally and re-evaluate the sustainability of their spending habits."
The Banx design system is largely based on the Belfius mobile application, awarded as the Best Digital Bank - Belgium 2020. But that didn't stop the team from experimenting with flows and ideas, taking the user experience to an even higher level.
Banx users have access to a personalized CO₂ dashboard, that gauges the carbon footprint of their expenses. At the core of this dashboard is the Åland Index, a mechanism that calculates the CO₂ emissions associated with each expense, at a category level.
Every time someone uses any of Banx’ services, they’ll receive points that can be exchanged for rewards. Think discounts on sustainable fashion, renewable energy, all the way to organic pet food. Banx has achieved this by opening up their platform, and partnering with local, sustainable companies
These partners are the driving force behind Banx’ mission for sustainable banking, as they are responsible for providing the rewards to Banx users. And this is only the beginning...
"Banx starts with convenience; customer onboarding takes less than five minutes, and it’s even easier to sign up your friends. Additionally, people are rewarded for their transactions and other choices they make. Our goal is to create an environmentally conscious mindset, while supporting local, sustainable businesses at the same time.”
