Climate Smart Futures: How emerging fintech and Web3 startups are building a new paradigm for climate resilience

Laura Beresford July 12, 2022

Over the past two years, there has been a surge of companies and initiatives leveraging fintech, Web3 and blockchain to confront the climate crisis on multiple fronts. We’re already seeing how blockchain can enable supply chain traceability and digital property rights, how decentralized autonomous organizations can de-incentivize carbon use and incentivize climate action, and how investors can play a crucial role in regenerative finance structures. But what does this mean for emerging markets? How can we break through the hype of the Web3 movement to provide tangible results for the planet, and those most impacted by climate change?
