- The EOS Network Foundation (ENF) collaborates with metaverse super application Upland and sustainability platform Aerial to propel the EOS Network towards being a climate-positive blockchain entity.
- This partnership is a substantial stride beyond carbon neutrality, pushing other networks to adopt climate-positive approaches, thus fostering a sustainable digital economy.
The forward-thinking EOS Network Foundation (ENF), a non-profit entity steering the evolution of the EOS Network, has orchestrated a partnership with the formidable metaverse application Upland and the sustainability-centric platform Aerial. This coalition is fashioned to transform the EOS Network into a blueprint of climate-positive blockchain technology.
Embarking on a Climate-Positive Voyage
ENF, through this strategic alliance, seeks to graduate from being a carbon-neutral to a climate-positive blockchain network, thus establishing a new benchmark in the blockchain sphere. The underlying goal is to invigorate other networks to embrace climate-positive methodologies, carving the path towards a sustainable digital economy.
EOS Network is engineered to be a minimal power consumer whilst retaining robust scalability and throughput. It already ranks among the globe’s most eco-friendly blockchains with an annual carbon dioxide footprint of 242 tonnes, a feat the ENF has successfully offset since 2018.
Upland, an open web3 platform rendering a metaverse mapped to the real world, has been an instrumental player in the EOS Network’s sustainability narrative since 2021, acting as the network’s carbon offset sponsor. The platform has extrapolated its sustainability endeavors beyond blockchain infrastructure by also offsetting the carbon footprint of the cloud services empowering its metaverse.
Danny Brown-Wolf, Upland’s Chief of Staff, manifested his enthusiasm about this collaboration, emphasizing Upland’s long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability and its eagerness to support EOS in becoming a climate-positive blockchain network.
Envisioning a Sustainable Digital Habitat
Conversely, Aerial is poised to spearhead the reduction of EOS’ carbon emissions by liaising with globally verified environmental projects. This partnership illustrates a resolute step towards a greener planet, as highlighted by Yves La Rose, the Founder and CEO of ENF, marking EOS Network’s 5-year journey from being the world’s first carbon-neutral blockchain to a climate-positive icon.
La Rose accentuated that this initiative surges past the EOS Network’s initial carbon neutrality aspirations, aiming to offset thrice the carbon footprint of the EOS Network, thereby epitomizing EOS’s steadfast commitment to environmental sustainability.
