In a significant move to combat climate change, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Changee (UNFCCC) has approved a collaborative initiative involving Hedera Hashgraph, Envision blockchain, and Swirlds Labs.
The trio is set to construct a cutting-edge carbon data platform on the blockchain to revolutionize the fight against climate change.
The joint project, known as Guardian and Managed Guardian Service, represents a breakthrough in digital measurement, reporting, and verification within carbon markets.
Leveraging Hedera’s blockchain and its native token, HBAR, the platform enhances transparency and data accessibility in carbon market activities, eliminating the need for centralized intermediaries.
The Hedera Guardian is positioned as the leading platform for digitized and digital measurement, reporting, and verification (dMRV) within the carbon markets.

Massamba Thioye, the Project Executive at the UNFCCC’s Global Innovation Hub, describes this project as a significant step towards streamlining and digitizing climate change mitigation methodologies.
Through a collaborative effort, 15 new methodologies have been introduced to an already extensive library of digitized and open-source methodology.
Notably, The Guardian and Managed Guardian Service offer advanced search features, revolutionizing the search functionality for project data.
This development allows users to access a wealth of environmental methodologies, including those from the UNFCCC’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Methodology library.
Wes Geisenberger, the VP of Sustainability & ESG at HBAR Foundation, lauds the project’s potential. He highlights the addition of 15 methodologies to the digitized library and the groundbreaking search features, which provide easily accessible project information and foster new possibilities for innovation.
