Call summary—

  • Kickoff to the SIG (29 people in the zoom call attending) !
  • General introduction to the SIG and the proposed mission and scope by the Co-Chairs and introduction to Hyperledger by David Boswell
    • Chairs proposed to hold a bi-weekly meeting for the SIG at the timezone proposed (8am Pacific Standard Time)
  • Opened the space for member introductions (at the half mark of 30 min). 
  • Members shared their work and background, which exhibits a good array of diversity, from large corporations, to startups, academia and non-profits
  • No objections were made to the bi-weekly meetings and timeslots. So Co-Chairs will create a recurring calendar for these meeting. 
  • Two comments were made by members around the role of standards in order to prevent overlapping efforts around DLT (distributed ledger technologies) for Climate without interoperability
    • This can spark a specific working group within the SIG
  • Missing topics that were not discussed

Action items—

  • Everyone is encouraged to add their profile in the member directory, and start loading useful resources around climate and DLTs. 
  • Everyone is encourage to start conversation in the Climate SIG chat and share the email list to other networks that might be interested in joining.
  • Co-chairs will create timeslot for recurring meetings (will send calendar invites soon)
  • The mention for standards can be followed-up by a suggestion from Linux Foundation on best practices, strategy and governance around the development for these. 
    • Co-chairs will follow up this discussion with LF and invites suggestions from members
  • Other proposed topics for future meetings
    • Existing Hyperledger frameworks suitable for the climate accounting space, and share of ongoing projects using HL for climate
    • The carbon and energy footprint of DLTs and blockchain, both to have transparency on environmental impact of the technology and dispel myths when needed
