We make tracking, sharing and contributing to a low-carbon lifestyle a part of people's daily lives
Through the Alipay mobile payment app operated by our affiliate Ant Financial, users can collect "green energy points" through low-carbon options in their daily lives such as using e-payments instead of paper invoices and choosing public transportation, biking or walking instead of driving to reduce vehicle emissions.
