A Better World, Together

Living sustainably isn't easy. 73% of Singaporeans are willing to adopt a green lifestyle in a fuss-free and intuitive manner, but many have yet to discover the right channels to do so*.

That’s why we created LiveBetter on digibank, a new initiative for all of us to make a real impact on our world, together. Because living sustainably doesn't have to be inconvenient.

How to LiveBetter together

Track Better

From the food we eat to the way we travel; our carbon footprint seems to grow everywhere we go. With Singapore's first carbon conscious tool by a bank – you can now easily track your carbon footprint based on your DBS debit and credit card spending.

Find out how we’re calculating your carbon footprint here.

Offset Better

Offset Better enables you to offset your carbon footprint partially or in full, directly from your mobile phone. This is possible because we buy and retire carbon credits on behalf of you from carbon projects that seek to actively reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon storage to compensate for emissions that occur elsewhere.
