Swinburne & Sphere join forces for eco-friendly fintech solution

Melbourne’s Swinburne University has entered into a partnership with Australian eco-fintech brand Sphere to promote personal climate action through innovative payment technologies. The collaboration aims to help consumers understand and mitigate their carbon footprint by using AI and machine learning to analyse card payments, providing solutions such as carbon offset projects.

Sphere’s technology will estimate the carbon footprint of an individual’s expenditure and offer opportunities to offset emissions through tree planting and restoration projects. The initiative is designed to work seamlessly through consumer banking apps and merchant checkouts. Sphere has set an ambitious target of offsetting more than 6.5 million tonnes of CO2 by 2027.
