Global coalition combining a Human chain collaborating and advancing Blockchain with Digital Innovations to achieve ambitious climate goals
As digital innovations are starting to mature, the CCC is evolving in response to CCC Members and stakeholders demands to focus on activities to resolve an array of challenges, including primarily:
– Growing partnerships across climate and digital communities, including the Digital Innovation Community and Digital Innovation Pavilion within the UNFCCC process
– Supporting knowledge creation and sharing, as well as access to resources to accelerate growth of solutions
– Co-leading and co-creating collaborative efforts, such as via new Climate Chain Labs, for shared data and digital innovation infrastructure to help empower stakeholders as an integrated ecosystem
The CCC was launched in 2017 with the cooperation of the UNFCCC Secretariat in response to growing interest and the rapid evolution of digital innovations for climate action. The CCC is an accredited observer organization to the UNFCCC, participating at COP and related UN events. The CCC and its members also collaborate with other initiatives focused on digital and climate, for example the World Bank, InterWork Alliance (GBBC), INATBA, and the Hyperledger Climate Action & Accounting Special Interest Group.

We recognize the massive challenge and urgency of global transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy and align with the goals of the Paris Agreement. We will cooperate to support immediate actions by and for blockchain and related digital solutions that contribute to the achievement of this transition.
We will cooperate to support the rapid advancement of DLT solutions to address climate change across mitigation and adaptation through enhanced climate actions, including but not limited to the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of the impact of all sorts of intervention, and the mobilization of climate finance from diversified sources.
On the basis of these shared principles and values, we will collaborate on concerted activities and in the dissemination of outputs in relation to DLT solutions and support stakeholder capacity building with regard to the deployment of shared tools and systems to advance climate change governance, especially in developing countries.
We recognize that DLT evolves constantly and therefore, maintain a neutral position regarding the applicability of DLT.
We will collaborate to establish basic standards in the development of related tools in support of the efficacy of DLT applications for climate change governance.
We will collaborate on DLT-related solutions to be developed in the interest of cost-effectiveness, integrity, transparency, and empowering stakeholders in socio-economic systems.
We will collaborate on a proactive strategy to identify and seek to mitigate fraudulent activities associated with the application of DLT in climate change and sustainability governance in general, as appropriate.
As organizations concerned about environmental integrity generally and climate change specifically, we recognize some negative effects and current challenges of many DLT applications (in particular those using the blockchain with proof of work consensus) regarding their levels of energy consumption and GHG emissions. We are transparent and forthcoming while we actively seek appropriate solutions to address these challenges.
We recognize that climate change is one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will encourage the development of DLT-based innovations for climate change which can simultaneously contribute to the achievement of SDGs.
