Sustainability & Resources

Sustainability and Resources

Oil and Gas

Blockchain enables new methods of sustainable business in the oil and gas sector, changing how exploration and production companies raise capital and how investors and consumers participate in energy markets. Enabling new ways of tracking waste and carbon, blockchain streamlines age-old processes while improving transparency for all stakeholders.

Ethical Resources

The ethical and sustainable sourcing of natural resources is becoming an increasingly important benchmark for consumers. Blockchain provides these markets with a system to track every transaction within an asset’s lifetime, that can be accessed by all stakeholders in the network.

Recycling and Waste

Dealing with waste means handling a number of issues including accountability at the end destination, paying collectors, and tracking waste shipments. Organizations are creating platforms to address these issues, using blockchain to record and track these transactions.
