Nasdaq Introduces Carbon Credit Digitization Tech
Nasdaq has revealed a new technology for the carbon credit industry that digitizes the issuance, settlement, and safekeeping of carbon credits. Until now, the market often relied on unstandardized manual processes, limiting its scalability.
Some key highlights include:
- Streamlined processes with standardized digital credits
- Enhanced efficiency and transparency using smart contract technology
- Comprehensive audit trails ensuring credit ownership and retirement tracking
- Ability to integrate with existing financial systems or operate as an independent platform
As part of the launch, Nasdaq is partnering with carbon removal registry platform Puro.earth to register and manage CO2 Removal Certificates (CORCs), with the goal of promoting transparency and preventing project duplication.
This technology could further carbon market development, attracting more diverse investors and modernizing infrastructure for a more sustainable future.
