- The EOS Network Foundation partners with metaverse application Upland and sustainability platform Aerial to transition EOS towards a climate-positive blockchain network.
- This collaboration marks a significant step beyond carbon neutrality, setting a precedent for other networks to contribute to a sustainable digital economy.
The EOS Network Foundation (ENF), the non-profit orchestrator of EOS Network’s growth, has fostered an ambitious partnership with the metaverse behemoth Upland and the green-tech platform Aerial. This triad aims to metamorphose the EOS Network into a climate-positive blockchain network, showcasing a bold step towards ecological accountability in the blockchain realm.
Steering Towards Climate Positivity
This collaborative initiative is an ode to the forward-thinking vision of ENF, Upland, and Aerial. The partnership is built on the foundation of transcending the EOS Network from its current carbon-neutral stance to a climate-positive archetype, thus inspiring other networks to follow suit in contributing to a sustainable digital economy.
EOS Network, renowned for its minimal power consumption while ensuring scalability and throughput, already stands among the elite environmentally responsible blockchains. Its annual carbon footprint of 242 tonnes of carbon dioxide has been fully offset since 2018, showcasing its commitment to a green blockchain infrastructure.
Upland, an avant-garde web3 platform that intricately maps a metaverse onto the real world, has been a cornerstone in EOS Network’s sustainability mission since 2021, acting as the network’s carbon offset sponsor. The platform’s endeavor does not stop at blockchain; it extends to offsetting carbon footprint of the cloud services energizing its metaverse, a testament to its comprehensive environmental stewardship.
Upland’s Chief of Staff, Danny Brown-Wolf, expressed his zest for this pioneering initiative, accentuating Upland’s enduring commitment to environmental sustainability and the anticipation to propel EOS towards becoming a climate-positive blockchain network.
Aerial: The Sustainability Vanguard
On the flip side, Aerial aligns with vetted global environmental endeavors to steer the charge in slashing EOS’ carbon emissions, echoing the mutual objective of this coalition – a sustainable digital ecosystem.
As EOS commemorates its 5-year milestone since becoming the world’s maiden carbon-neutral blockchain, this initiative marks a significant stride towards climate positivity. Yves La Rose, the Founder and CEO of ENF, acknowledged this initiative as a monumental leap, offsetting thrice the carbon footprint of the EOS Network, underscoring the unwavering commitment of EOS towards environmental sustainability.
