Realizing The Paris Agreement

The Paris Agreement ‘s Article 6 aims to limit global warming to 1.5°C through global cooperation to slow the momentum of the Climate Crisis, yet the carbon market lacks the necessary tech infrastructure to foster sustainable global adoption.

WHAT THAT MEANS

Can the right technology address these challenges?

1
Fragmented registries

The market relies on various disconnected registries that hinder communication and data transfers between parties.
