MDP and Mastercard rock Egypt with groundbreaking carbon calculator.

Mastercard has partnered with MDP, a financial services provider in Egypt, to launch a carbon calculator tool. The tool, powered by the Doconomy Ă…land Index, allows users to estimate the carbon emissions associated with their card purchases and provides insights and comparisons to foster eco-consciousness. The initiative aligns with Egypt’s Sustainable Development Strategy and Mastercard’s commitment to net-zero emissions by 2040. Mastercard has also developed a directory of sustainable materials and vendors for card products to embed sustainability in the supply chain. The company plans to transition all newly produced cards to recycled and bio-based materials by 2028.
