DeepMarkit announced that its MintCarbon.io platform can help individuals and families offset their annual carbon footprints to become carbon neutral. This innovative solution is critical in Canada’s commitment to reduce its carbon emissions by 30% by 2030.
Canadians emit about 14.2 tonnes of carbon per person per year. If the average cost of $15/tonne of carbon is applied, an average Canadian can offset their annual carbon footprint for $213.
Using the same cost, an average family size of 2.9 people emitting ~30 tonnes/year can become carbon neutral for a reasonable cost.
Via MintCarbon.io, DeepMarkit helps fight carbon emissions by making it easier for people and businesses that want to drive net zero to buy and retire NFT-based carbon credits on the platform.
MintCarbon.io is a web-based ecosystem that facilitates the minting of carbon credits into NFTs, among other features. The NFT minting process for carbon credits is done by confirming and authenticating them on a carbon project registry.
Once the credits’ authenticity is verified, they can then be minted into carbon credit NFT via MintCarbon.io. Once minted, the user can hold, sell or retire their NFTs on a third-party platform.
