Whether you believe climate change is real or not, your actions matter. They matter so much that we’ve decided to reward them.
Every kilo of carbon emitted, and every piece of plastic in the oceans, was put there by people who didn’t think their actions mattered.
If you feel like climate change is too big for you to tackle alone, you’re right. Together, our actions add up to the reality we’re in, and together we can change it.
With Kora, you can see just how much is being done every day by people like you.
Everyone is on their own journey. Some do more than others. Some care more than others.
With Kora, you can see the impact of your actions in real time, and be rewarded for reducing your ecological footprint.
You can spend these rewards with participating businesses, and with the Kora community.
In 2018, the Economist made a bold statement: “Humanity is losing the war against climate change”. Climate change is putting at risk not only our physical wellbeing but our wallets too. Despite efforts such as the 2015 Paris Agreement, most indicators are worsening. In 2015, the IMF estimated the cost of damage from fossil fuels at US$5.3 trillion every year. This is affecting everyone, including YOU!
It is often difficult to understand how our choices impact the environment because carbon emissions seem like such an abstract concept. Kora is a tool that will help you to track your impact on the planet through measuring sustainable lifestyle choices including mobility, energy and purchasing behaviour. While raising awareness Kora also rewards sustainable behaviour of its users. This way CO2 emissions are reduced combining both moral and financial motivation.
Kora wants to help you to better understand the effects of your choices so that you can make more informed decisions and learn about how you can make daily choices towards sustainability. You can then compare your progress with your own personal carbon saving goals, with your friends and with the collective action of your region or country. Share our mission with others so that we can work together to take responsible climate action.
The Kora is an asset-backed coin designed for low volatility and initially pegged to the Euro. It's made for everyday purchases, like coffee and croissants. The goal of the Kora is to be accepted by large economies such as cities, governments and corporations, eventually building a new type of economy - driven by sustainable actions.
