Ethereum Climate Platform launches to address the network’s prior PoW emissions

Months after the Ethereum Merge, where the network shifted to the more eco-friendly proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus, the Ethereum community is now shifting its focus to redress the network’s former proof-of-work (PoW) carbon emissions since its launch. 

At the COP27 climate action event, Web3 firms, civil society leaders and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) announced the formation of the Ethereum Climate Platform (ECP) that aims to counteract the carbon footprint of the Ethereum network since it launched in 2015.

Led by software company ConsenSys and climate-focused blockchain firm Allinfra, the founding members of the coalition includes a number of organizations, including Microsoft, Polygon, Aave, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC), Huobi and Laser Digital.
