ECO2 is officially participating in UNFCCC’s Climate Neutral Now initiative. As ECO2 will be carbon neutral, including all public blockchain & dapp ecosystem activity, we have pledged carbon neutrality as a company in the emerging Chinese blockchain space. （https://unfccc.int/climate-action/climate-neutral-now/i-am-a-company/organization/climate-neutral-now-signatories）
What is Climate Neutral Now?
Climate Neutral Now is an initiative launched by UN Climate Change in 2015 to encourage everyone in society to take action to help achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century, as enshrined in the Paris Agreement.
To avoid the worst effects of climate change, science tells us that we must limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, or a maximum of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, which is also the central goal of the Paris Agreement. To achieve this objective, relying solely on governmental action will not be sufficient. We all have a role to play.
We have already reached 1.1 degrees Celsius of global warming. We could reach 1.5 by 2030. We need urgent action!
Why join Climate Neutral Now?
Join a growing group of leading organizations and individuals to incentivize behavioral changes which in turn will drive the change within their industries and networks, helping align them with the Sustainable Development Goals. Become a leader and support society to succeed against this challenge.
Use this opportunity to apply one of the tools we have available to support climate action at global level: the carbon markets. By doing this you provide incentive for further emission reductions, support the development of a price on carbon, and give a clear signal to industry and policy makers that climate action is necessary.
Finally, take responsibility NOW for the emissions that you cannot currently avoid. Try to reduce your emissions as much as possible, and keep continuously trying to reduce them, but compensate those that you have not been able to eliminate.
