Klarna's Artificial Intelligence at the service of shopping

Another survey conducted by Klarna highlighted that a large majority of consumers (76%) would appreciate an AI-powered shopping assistant capable of suggesting more sustainable alternatives when shopping online, especially in the fashion, technology and household goods sectors. Furthermore, a significant percentage of respondents (66% for fashion and 75.5% for technology) believes that AI can help solve sustainability issues in these areas. However, the high cost of sustainable products and the lack of options (56.5% and 27.5% of respondents respectively) still represent significant barriers.

In February 2024, Klarna announced that its AI assistant handled over 2.3 million conversations in 35 different languages, providing support primarily for customer service and financial matters. The company's goal is to expand the capabilities of this assistanttransforming it into an integrated tool for shopping and financial management, with the aim of recommending products that are both economical and environmentally friendly.

The Untrend Report fits into this context as a step forward towards Klarna's goal of facilitating more informed consumer choices, thanks also to tools such as the map of sustainable stores, information on CO2 emissions for each order and a dashboard for responsible purchasing.
