The Framework was developed by Crypto Carbon Ratings Institute (CCRI) & South Pole

in consultation with PayPal's Blockchain, Crypto and Digital Currencies (BCDC) team and other climate and crypto experts.

As part of the framework release, South Pole and CCRI have jointly developed a methodology for crypto value chain stakeholders to allocate GHG emissions to their cryptocurrency-related activities.

The report introduces a holistic framework that allocates the GHG emissions of a cryptocurrency's network across the stakeholders along the value chain based on cryptocurrency-related holdings and transactions.

Framework developed by:

South Pole

"This framework is an exciting first step towards an industry-aligned GHG accounting standard for cryptocurrency value chains."

Chris Heysel, Head of Advisory, North America for South Pole


"This framework helps to overcome weaknesses of one-dimensional allocation methods and provides clarity by better reflecting the responsibility of stakeholders along the value chain."

Ulrich Gallersdörfer, CEO of Crypto Carbon Ratings Institute (CCRI)
