Amidst a sea of ​​announcements and partnerships, Envision Blockchain, in collaboration with the HBAR Foundation and Swirlds Labs, announces a new open-source Managed Guardian Service (MGS) platform focused on digital and digital measurement, reporting and verification (dMRV) system .for carbon markets.

The dMRV system was developed in partnership with the United Nations Global Climate Change Innovation Center and is based on the HBAR blockchain. The new platform aims to digitally transform carbon markets using decentralized blockchain technology.

The CDM methodological library contains hundreds of sets of rules needed to create a carbon credit, independently developed in an analog process that supports the carbon market. Envision, with the help and guidance of the UNFCCC secretariat team, digitized 15 of the most used rules and expanded the existing library of methodologies available in the HBAR Guardian ecosystem.

Expanding the library of digitized and open source methodologies will enable registries, project promoters and other market stakeholders to use digital technologies to solve issues of trust and transparency.

Cointelegraph reached out to Wes Geisenberger, Vice President of Sustainability and ESG at the HBAR Foundation, to learn about the importance and operation of the new dMRV platform and how it will help digitize the complex credit market in carbon.
