The On-Chain Solution
Encode Carbon Offsetting into Smart Contracts
Integrate Sustainability into this New Trustless & Decentralised World
The decentralized revolution is rebuilding the world's financial infrastructure with people at it's core.
We have a unique opportunity to also make the environment a beneficiary of our financial activity rather than a victim.
Offsetting with Carbon Tokens
An equivalent of one tonne of carbon emissions are reduced/removed when Carbon Tokens are "burnt".
Pool of Carbon Security Tokens
A deposited portfolio of various securitised carbon credits forms Carbon pools which mint Carbon Tokens
Fair Value Carbon & Off-Chain Arbitrage
Arbitrage with the wider carbon market reduces market inefficiencies and ensures a fair market price. This is created by the Carbon Security Token owner's right to withdraw.
Carbon Project Traceability
Our real-time dashboard allows you to trace a smart contract's total carbon offsets and explore the projects supported.
DAO Approved Off-Chain Custodians
Carbon Credits are held by DAO-approved off-chain custodians. The DAO withdraws and retires "burnt" carbon credits with registry
Certified Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction and Removal Projects
CarbonDAO works with suppliers to source Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) for tokenisation and currently exploring supporting projects on the Verra Registry.
Verra is the global leader in developing and managing standards that help the private sector, countries, and civil society achieve ambitious sustainable development and climate action goals.
We are exploring VCUs held in an approved off-chain custodian's active Verra registry account in exchange for a corresponding Semi-Fungible Security token (SFST).
An SFST minted by an ERC 1155 contract provides the token with a unique VCU reference number and a variety of properties identifying project type, origin, etc.
SFSTs can be deposited in Carbon Pools in exchange for the Fungible Carbon Tokens corresponding to that Pool.
Carbon Pools have a defined distribution of SFST properties. This distribution is what controls the portfolio of carbon projects are offset and in what percentage.

Connecting Public Blockchains
Global Carbon Market
CarbonDAO connects the Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM) and smart contract enabled public blockchains.
The cumulative market volume in the Voluntary Carbon Market topped 1.3 billion mt CO2 equivalent in 2019, with the value exceeding $5.5 billion.
However, the Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM) is still considered small in relation to anticipated demand. With a demand of 95MtCO2e/yr in 2020, the VCM currently represents only 0.2% of the reductions needed to achieve the 1.5C Paris temperature goal pathway in 2030. [Source]
CarbonDAO is positioned at the junction between the exploding Voluntary Carbon Market and the technological revolution of decentralised trustless blockchain.
