Forget Platinum, here's a Green card
Caixa Geral de Depósitos has released a Zero Carbon Card, a unique bank card that gives its holders special benefits for the purchase of goods and services that are more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. A solution that aims to contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions and, at the same time, to reward consumers for contributing to a healthier world. The card also gives CO2 credits, meaning that the amount of money saved in the cash back programme is used in energy saving or energy efficient projects, generating credits that compensate for its owners’ inevitable emissions.
