Blockchain: A Catalyst for Global Change
On the 16th of August, 2023, the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund (UNJSPF) took a significant step by joining the Blockchain for Sustainable Future (BC100+) initiative. At its core, BC100+ is not just an initiative; it’s a robust confluence of diverse organizations, emphasizing blockchain’s unparalleled capability to drive societal change and pave the way for a sustainable future.

The mission of BC100+ transcends its name. It’s not just about promoting the integration of blockchain, but it’s about nurturing holistic discussions, fostering awareness, and delineating the prospects of how blockchain intertwines seamlessly with the ideals enshrined in the UN Charter Values and the ambitious 2030 Agenda.
Dino Dell’Accio, who helms the position of Chief Information Officer at UNJSPF, remarked on this collaboration, stating,
“Endorsing the BC100+ Manifesto resonates with our vision for modernization. We’re not just embracing blockchain as a technology; we’re harnessing its transformative potential for societal upliftment, all while adhering to guiding principles.”
Inclusivity at BC100+: A Global Endeavor
What makes BC100+ stand apart is its inclusive approach. The initiative is open to a myriad of organizations, be it blockchain savants, UN departments with a blockchain-centric vision, or Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) ventures, irrespective of their blockchain involvement.
The global scope of BC100+ is further magnified under the esteemed patronage of H.E. Csaba Kőrösi, the President of the 77th UN General Assembly. With his support, BC100+ becomes a nexus, integrating the nuanced blockchain ecosystem with the expansive efforts spearheaded by UN agencies. The unified goal? To champion the UN Charter values and fortify the pillars of Sustainable Development Goals.
