Tokenization of Carbon Markets

Climate change requires bigger action and adaptation. Enabling transparency and efficiency, digital transactions through immutable ledgers ensure the accountability that carbon markets need


The challenge

The growth of the global GHG emissions markets has caused the emergence of an array of global and regional credits, markets, and trading mechanisms. This resulted in the fragmented implementation of the cap-and-trade scheme and a lack of cross-market exchange of value. Currently, cumbersome cap-and-trade schemes leave behind a vast portion of the carbon offsetting efforts of the production industry and imply high transaction fees that mostly benefit brokers and agents.

The climate challenge offers productive industries an opportunity to positively transform their production standards amid the pressuring requests from investors, regulators, and the market towards sustainable practices.
