Cannes Lions: Sustainable Development Goals Winners 2021 

Doconomy’s 2030 Calculator takes the Grand Prix in Sustainable Development Goals category at Cannes

Doconomy’s The 2030 Calculator, which enables fast and reliable calculations of products’ carbon footprints, has been awarded the Grand Prix for the Sustainable Development Goals category at Cannes this year.

The Swedish impact-tech startup’s tool generates products’ carbon footprint calculations, fundamental to carbon labelling, in minutes, making it easier for brands and manufacturers to be transparent.

Doconomy co-founder and head of innovation Johan Pihl compares carbon labelling to the introduction of calorie content to food packaging. ‘What happened over time was that people gained a better understanding,’ he told Contagious in an interview last year, adding that Doconomy’s goal here is similar, ‘to get consumers aware on a basic level how products differ on impact, making them understand that, accumulated over a year, it determines their overall individual carbon footprint. And that’s what we want to accomplish. A collective awareness of the impact of consumption.’

Earlier this year, Doconomy partnered with challenger bank Klarna to bring carbon impact calculations on all transactions to 90 million users, while it has also teamed with Mastercard to develop a carbon calculator that banks can integrate into their apps.
