As the global community grows increasingly aware of environmental issues and the imminent threat of climate change, it becomes more evident that traditional mechanisms to combat these issues are marred by a litany of problems. The environmental markets, in particular, are besieged by a host of challenges that hinder their efficiency and efficacy. From the complexities and access issues surrounding the purchase of quality environmental credits to the opaque and often unreliable nature of environmental market trading, these obstacles form a daunting barrier to entry for potential participants.

In the world of environmental credits, entities such as individuals, corporations, or project developers design and implement carbon offset projects. These projects generate carbon credits that represent emission reductions or removals, with one carbon credit equating to one metric ton of GHG emissions. These credits, certified by organizations like Verra and the Gold Standard, can be traded multiple times until retired by the end user.

The projects generating these credits generally fall under two categories: Avoidance/Reduction and Removal/Sequestration. These range from preventing or reducing carbon release (including deforestation aversion or fuel-efficient cookstoves) to removing carbon from the atmosphere (like reforestation or biochar). Moreover, these projects often offer additional benefits, such as improving biodiversity and providing social, economic, and educational advantages.

Notedly, Changeblock acknowledges the pressing need to go beyond carbon. Multiple pollutants, including methane, sulfurs, nitrous oxides, plastics, and ocean pollution, contribute to the global climate crisis. Therefore, Changeblock presents a comprehensive solution through its cross-spectrum environmental credit exchange.

Changeblock follows a trusted decentralized pathway, consisting of the following steps: Identification of climate technologies or nature-based project developers, Verification through Audit and Verification Methodology such as ISO14001, Verified Carbon Standard, Gold Standard, Issuance of Credit, Exchange with buyers and traders, and Repeat with new technologies and projects.

These barriers have led to a dysfunctional system that often deters potential entrants. Nevertheless, Changeblock is committed to addressing these issues and transforming the environmental market landscape.
