About Us

Blockchain & Climate Institute

With climate change threatening the livelihoods of humans and the earth they inhabit, there is an urgent need for a strong commitment to develop innovative solutions in a responsible and transparent way. Developments in emerging technologies such as Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT), particularly blockchain, play a crucial role in addressing global sustainability challenges. However there remains a policy evidence gap among state and non-state-based institutions in the climate change policy community.

As a progressive think tank providing leading expertise in emerging technologies deployment for climate and sustainability actions, the Blockchain & Climate Institute addresses this by enabling global technology transfers. By means of aggregation and distribution of new knowledge, BCI’s international network for scientific and technological experts is able to enhance state and non-state climate actions through targeted technological interventions.
