UAE signs deal to develop carbon credit system on Venom ...



The United Arab Emirates Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MCCE) is developing a carbon credit system in a preliminary partnership with the Industrial Innovation Group and the Venom Foundation.Blockchain technology is utilized by organizations and countries to track carbon credits. 


Due to the immutable nature of data inscribed on-chain, these credits can be securely sold or traded with total transparency for all interested parties.This allows government organizations, such as the UAE’s MCCE, to sell or issue credits to businesses. Credit holders can either spend the credits — which allows them to emit a specific amount of carbon over a given period of time — or sell and trade them to other organizations looking to offset their own emissions.

Ultimately, the goal is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. 


According to a local news report, UAE Minister of Climate Change and Environment Mariam Al Mheiri says this has contributed to a positive update to the country’s roadmap for reducing emissions:“The UAE believes in its ability to make a difference in this field and has pledged, through the third update of its second Nationally Determined Contributions, to reduce its emissions by 40 per cent compared to a business-as-usual scenario, an increase of 9 per cent over its previous pledge.”While the UAE ranks 33rd globally for total emissions, analysis from the same report shows that it ranks sixth globally per capita, according to data from 2020.
