A universal, positive-impact gift card solution for businesses.

Our story is one of committed entrepreneurs wanting to become players in the social economy.

What if we were to radically transform the potential of financial reward?

The classic gift card has had its day. Sorewards renews the concept of rewards by offering a meaningful solution that is both effective and caring. A gift card that not only reimburses the unused (1 billion euros lost or forgotten every year in France), but also encourages CSR by integrating everyone into a virtuous chain of generosity: companies, beneficiaries and associations alike. It's time to make gift vouchers a part of the positive, social and solidarity-based economy!

Quite simply, to give pleasure and choice. Our aim is to raise awareness and empower organizations and individuals around giving and responsible purchasing, without ever giving lessons. Just a card so generous that it makes you want to be generous too.

Our universal motivations and rewards solution is valid everywhere in the world, from the largest retailers to your local bookshop or organic grocer.

Solidarity finds its raison d'être in altruism and the joy of freely chosen giving, without value judgment.

Dematerialized, agile and fully customizable, this card is based on a transparent and ethical business model. It contributes to the confidence of organizations, the motivation of teams, the influence of the employer brand and the pride of all.

Our vision: social rewards = sorewards

Gift vouchers are the source of much frustration for companies and their recipients:

  • 1 billion in gift cards is lost or forgotten in France every year
  • Local shops and associations excluded from acceptance networks
  • Managing rewards is cumbersome and time-consuming
  • Personalization of gift certificates is very limited

The current gift voucher model is not part of the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE), and no longer meets the requirements of companies and SSCs, or the expectations of consumers.

Our aim is to transform the use of financial rewards by offering organizations a solution that makes gift vouchers part of the positive economy.

To achieve this, we propose an alternative model to traditional gift vouchers. A more transparent and virtuous model that enables companies and employees to support great causes through donations, giving even more meaning to the CSR approach.

Sorewards' carbon footprint

Use of gift cards = 199 tCO2e, or 92%. Digital = 0.43 tCO2e, or 1%. Purchasing = 16.2 tCO2e, or 7%. Other = 1.56 tCO2e, or 1%.

217 tonnes of CO2e emitted in 1 year!

In 2022, Sorewards carried out its first-ever carbon assessment with Toovalu®.

Our carbon footprint was 217 tonnes of CO2e, 91% of which was generated by the use of our dematerialized gift cards (excluding charitable donations).

That's as many emissions as it takes to drive 1,001,838 km in a combustion-powered car, produce 477,308 kg of grapes or manufacture 1,226 laptops!

A methodology recognized by ADEME

In partnership with Toovalu® and the firm Veracy, we used the Bilan Carbone® version 8 method developed by ADEME, in accordance with international standard ISO 14 064.

We have studied all our emissions generated through scopes 1, 2 and 3 (upstream and downstream) over our fiscal year from October 2022 to October 2023.

Our emissions are calculated using a common unit of measurement, the kilogram of CO2 equivalent (kg CO2e), a unit created by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) to compare different greenhouse gases (GHGs).

Our major responsibility: the use of our gift cards

How do we encourage responsible and sustainable consumption of our dematerialized gift cards?

Our objective is simple: to reconcile purchasing power and responsibility, without constraint, by encouraging generosity.

We're going to raise awareness among our beneficiaries, who are gradually moving towards more responsible consumption - through dedicated communications and purchase incentives within our application.

We also want to exclude certain unethical e-commerce platforms from our acceptance network.

We're looking into other avenues, so follow us on Linkedin to find out more!
