The effects of climate change are being felt worldwide, creating an ever-growing urgency for new solutions. Many have touted the potential of blockchain technologies to deliver a new level of traceability and transparency that will wring out wasteful, unsustainable practices from critical manufacturing, mining, farming and other processes. In this session, Hyperledger’s Daniel Barbosa will lead a conversation with Douglas Johnson-Poensgen of Circulor, Nancy Norris of the Government of British Columbia’s Ministry for Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation and Kamlesh Nagware of Snapper Future Tech about the actual impact blockchain is having on the market. They will share details from deployments in markets from around the world that are tackling issues ranging from sourcing raw materials for electric vehicles to improving plastics recycling to validating emissions and sustainability efforts in mining and natural gas. In addition, they will cover - Why traceability and verification have emerged as important weapons in addressing climate change - The role of blockchain in critical cross-industry and public/private collaboration - Pathways to sustainability for blockchain technologies and growing adoption of tokens, credentials, smart contracts and more in the climate fight
