The InterWork Alliance (IWA) today announced the formation of its Sustainability Business Working Group, which will focus on making the tokenization of sustainability business use cases possible through standards and a trusted certification program. To date, there is no global standard solution for tokenizing the outcomes of accounting processes designed to track greenhouse gas emission reductions in the form of offsets or credits. By developing a technology-neutral standard for tokenizing emissions and offsets, along with contractual requirements to operate against these tokens, the IWA can dramatically accelerate the implementation and interworking of carbon markets – both voluntary and regulated – using distributed ledger techniques.
