About DATAFLUCT's environmental business

DATAFLUCT has started developing the "becoz" business as a platform for all stakeholders, including consumers, to participate in efforts to become carbon neutral, focusing on the issue that "while individuals are becoming more environmentally conscious, there are no services that support them when they want to understand the environmental impact of their actions and actually change their behavior". In order to enable all stakeholders, including consumers, to participate in carbon neutral initiatives, we have started the development of the "becoz" business as a platform.

In July 2021, we signed a partnership agreement with Doconomy (Head office: Stockholm, Sweden; CEO: Mathias Wikström), a Swedish impact tech company, and started business development under the theme of "consumption activity x carbon neutrality. In June 2022, as the first service for individuals, "becoz" launched "becoz wallet," a service that enables individuals to visualize their CO2 emissions and offset carbon emissions based on lifestyle-related questionnaires. On the same day, we issued the "becoz card," a climate change action concept credit card, in partnership with Credit Saison Co.

In March 2023, we will launch "becoz challenge," a service that converts eco-friendly activities of consumers, such as resource recycling and bicycle/walking trips, into points that can be exchanged for goods and services provided by companies and organizations, or donated. As a demonstration of this service, we collaborated with Matsumoto Yamaga Football Club (Matsumoto Yamaga FC) to visualize the amount of CO2 emissions reduced by supporters' eco-friendly activities.

Through the "becoz" business, we aim to amplify the environmental value of communities by visualizing and distributing the value gained from environmentally conscious behavior and consumption. For more information on "becoz", please visit the service website. (Japanese only)https://becoz.ai/)
