The Open Offsets Directory
The voluntary carbon offsets market has long been held back by a lack of transparency. We believe the solution is a decentralized data common built with blockchain that encourages market participants to share their data.
A prototype of this concept using live data is now available at opentaps.org/offsets
If you’re involved with the offsets market, please join our study as an expert. Start by completing this online questionnaire, and let us know if you’re available to be interviewed.
From Energy to Emissions
This demo shows how we’re taking utility bills from Green Button XML and storing them on a permissioned data channel with Hyperledger Fabric.
To try it yourself, see our blockchain carbon accounting project on Github.
Emissions Tokens on Blockchain
Take a look at an emissions tokens network, which allows emissions auditors, REC dealers, emissions offsets dealers, and consumers to tract emissions and trade offsets on an Ethereum blockchain.

What does the voluntary carbon offsets market really look like? Here are some key statistics of the voluntary carbon offsets in 2020 with The Open Offsets Directory, using data from the Berkeley Carbon Trading Project. Offsets Issued and Retired by Year First, let’s take a look at the big trends: total amount of voluntary offsets […]
The voluntary carbon offsets market is a critical part of our solution for climate change. It is a global marketplace where companies and individuals could invest in climate solutions that are vetted by independent standards organizations, and its very existence testifies both to a deep commitment to climate action and a potential to link finance […]
We all want an open, inclusive community to decide on climate-related questions such as: Is a carbon offset legitimate? Is a company realling taking positive climate action? Is a product really green? Yet in the age of social media, it’s hard to know whether people who write reviews have actually bought a product, or even […]
Background This tutorial explains how to build a complete Ethereum dApp using React.js, web3Modal, ethers, and Hardhat. The dApp we built here is an open source carbon emissions trading application in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that cause climate change. In this dApp, emissions auditors can issue tokens of emissions to individuals and organizations, who could […]
