Hyperledger, as part of the Linux Foundation, is an open source/open community professional organization. This SIG is technology and blockchain ecosystem agnostic and open to anyone interested in the use of digital technologies to address the global climate challenge. Your active participation is encouraged and always welcome, and attendance is free to all.
Mission and Goals
To foster a collaborative network of climate, DLT, and other emerging technology organizations (i.e. universities, NGOs, government, startups, corporations, multilateral development banks, etc.) that can create a center of gravity around the role of DLT and open source software to address challenges in the global climate action, policy and digital accounting space. A focus point of the SIG would be to turn this network into action under a common open source project that defines shared protocols, standards, and platform tools for a globally integrated climate accounting system to be operationalized. This open climate project can act as a shared initiative where participants can contribute value to and share explorations in the use of DLT alongside other emerging technologies such as IoT (Internet of Things), big data, and machine learning to address the challenge of keeping a transparent climate accounting system towards the climate targets set in the 2015 Paris Agreement.
The community will take initiative to specifically address:
The scope of the SIG is defined by the terms climate action and climate accounting.
Climate Action is a broadly encompassing term that involves all climate-relevant actions (e.g. policies, programs, technologies, goods, services…) taken by actors (e.g. states and non-state actors such as businesses, cities, individuals…) — from emission generating activities, to the broad set of actions encompassed within climate mitigation and adaptation and its associated finance mechanisms.
Climate Accounting, on the other hand, is referred to here as the encompassing term that involves all processes of recording climate-relevant information/data — from the physical state of the planet to the list of all climate actors, their broad set of climate actions and agreements in respect to the shared account of the climate challenge.
Whilst climate action occurs in the real world, climate accounting is recorded in the digital world.
This SIG will help build the relationship between both and consolidate technological tools to do so.
