Xange.com Will Develop a Carbon Credit Solution on the XRP Ledger

EBENE, Mauritius, Dec. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xange.com, a sustainably run securities exchange operated in partnership with the United Nations, announced today that it will develop a Carbon Credit Solution on the carbon neutral XRP Ledger (XRPL).

Xange.com is working hand in hand with the UN Development System (UNDS), focusing on African market infrastructure solutions for carbon markets and to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

In this context, Xange.com is preparing the launch of the implementation of its voluntary carbon credit infrastructure to channel Carbon Credit Offsets from the African Great Green Wall Initiative

Xange.com will develop a Carbon Credit Solution on the XRP Ledger for the issuance of tokenized carbon credits, in accordance with standards set by the leading industry working groups like the InterWork Alliance (IWA), a Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC) initiative, and the Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets (TSVCM), of which Xange.com is a member.  

The IWA Sustainability Business Working Group created the Voluntary Ecological Markets (VEM) Taskforce to define the standards for tokenization of key elements for carbon credits, including contractual extensions, workflows, and analytics for creating a standards-based ecological market. These standards, based on the IWA's Token Taxanomy Framework (for token standards) and InterWork Framework (for smart contract standards), will serve as foundations for the Xange.com Carbon Credit Solution on the XRP Ledger.

Xange.com chose to build on the XRP Ledger given its performance, scalability and inherently green attributes. The XRP Ledger was built with sustainability in mind and is one of the first major carbon neutral blockchains. Due to its Federated Consensus algorithm, the XRPL is significantly more energy efficient compared to proof-of-work blockchains and ensures low-cost transactions.

Key focus points of Xange.com include the role of climate change and climate security, the prevention and mitigation of illicit financial transactions and on carbon emission initiatives using blockchain technology to bring transparency to carbon accounting by avoiding double counting of emission reductions or removals.
