Blockchain is one of the most disrupting digital technologies finding new applications across all sectors of the economy.

With governments and corporates across the world realising the value of blockchain, we decided, as part of our Climate Change series, to create a course that covers practical application of blockchain technologies in climate change and sustainability.

In this course we cover common misconceptions about blockchain technology and explain in plain language how it works and why it has become such a significant breakthrough. We talk about the key features and benefits of blockchain and how these features enable solutions in climate change and sustainability.

For this course we invited the global authority on this subject, the Director General at Blockchain & Climate institute, Alastair Marke.  We also interviewed Thomas Duong, the CEO and Co-Founder of The Green Projects, to provide an example of blockchain application for forestry carbon offsets, which are used to finance the reforestation and afforestation projects (this material was added to Blockchain applications in Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use lesson).

This course has been designed for both ESG and Climate professionals, but also for climate-conscious leaders, managers, entrepreneurs, IT professionals, management consultants and anyone else who is interested to explore opportunities and developments in blockchain technologies, and has passion for climate action.

What you will learn

  • Blockchain history, key features and definitions (double-spending, distributed ledger, consensus mechanism, PoW, PoS, smart contract, tokenisation, MRV, etc)

  • Application of blockchain in energy sector, forestry, agriculture, project finance, green bonds, carbon markets, climate corporate disclosures and policies

  • Climate DAOs (Decentralised Autonomous Organisations)

  • Blockchain technology implementation challenges and approaches
