The ‘Every Action Counts’ coalition, promoted by the Green Digital Finance Alliance (GDFA), comprises of many companies worldwide and aims to get members of the public to bring environmentally-friendly habits into their daily lives.

Using technology and global partnerships to incentivise more than one billion people to start taking green actions is what the coalition is striving to achieve.

“We are in a very exciting time, which offers us the opportunity to develop digital solutions that help citizens to generate greater sustainable awareness and help them on the road to the transition to a zero-carbon world.”
