INTRODUCING CARBONX

CarbonX engages millions of people in the fight against climate change by providing a network platform for companies to easily and efficiently offset their carbon emissions and create demand for their carbon-neutral products and services.

PREVENTING GLOBAL TEMPERATURES FROM RISING 2°C IS ESSENTIAL TO WORLD PROSPERITY.

 
 

Climate Change is the Critical Issue of our Time

The world is recognizing that climate change is an environmental crisis threatening global prosperity.

The risk to global stability and financial markets has been articulated by Mark Carney and Michael Bloomberg at the Task Force for Climate Related Financial Disclosures. If you are a business person, then you must factor risk from Climate Change in your future plans. World over, companies need to act now and re-organize to become carbon neutral.

 
 

How CarbonX Helps

CarbonX sources and recasts carbon offsets as tokens on a private blockchain, thereby validating provenance and ensuring the security and transparency of all transactions.

Our Zerofootprint® program assess the carbon impact of products and services, then balances that impact with carbon offsets to certify the carbon neutrality of products and services and assure customers that they are making sustainable choices in their buying behavior.

Our GOODcoins program further engages consumers by rewarding them for choosing Zerofootprint® certificed products.

The Zerofootprint® program begins with a patented carbon analysis of excess emissions for your company's operation and/or for a specific product line, service or brand. CarbonX will assist you in setting industry standard targets and through our tokenized ZFP offsets, which are delivered in real-time via our blockchain-based platform, award a Zerofoodprint® Certficate of Carbon-Neutrality

The provenance of these offsets can be independently validated by your shareholders, employees, and customers via a feed of the transactions that can be used as proof of your carbon neutrality status.



Plus, with the GOODcoins program, CarbonX can help to incentivize consumers to choose your carbon-neutral products and services.


Zerofootprint® is recognized by the Obama White House, the Clinton Foundation, and the government of Ontario.

GOODcoins

Through the GOODcoins program, companies can reward shareholders, consumers or employees for making carbon-friendly decisions, and further incent demand for their products and services.

Companies that are certified by Zerofootprint® can offer ZFP tokens to their stakeholders as incentives to purchase carbon-friendly goods and services. When those ZFP tokens are redeemed (initially via the ZFP Network website), they can be used to offset the company’s excess emissions – a win-win-win for the company, the consumer, and the environment.


CarbonX sources our carbon offsets from local geography or national projects such as methane capture, forestry, and other UNFCC certified projects.
