This free storage utility aims to address the shortcomings of traditional storage solutions for all types of digital environmental assets, said the company.
Filecoin Green, a Protocol Labs initiative designed to reduce the environmental impact of FIlecoin and make it verifiably sustainable, has spearheaded an initiative to power Web3 technology with verifiably clean energy.
According to the announcement, the company is set to address the shortcomings of traditional carbon storage solutions by “marrying blockchain’s granular tracking functionality with the information-sharing infrastructure of Web3.”
Filecoin Green launched CO2.Storage, a Web3 data storage solution that intends to enable transparency for carbon offsets and address traditional storage solutions for all types of digital environmental assets, including renewable energy credits.
As part of the initiative, Filecoin Green said it has partnered with several companies involved with tokenizing carbon offsets, such as Toucan, Thallo, Ripple, the HBAR Foundation, Envision Blockchain, Return Protocol and Gainforest. The data storage solution will enable carbon credit providers to define their own data schemas and store this data through content-addressing on Filecoin and the InterPlanetary File System, thereby creating a transparent system for carbon credits.
