Many of us have followed closely what was happening in COP26 in Glasgow the last couple of weeks. Sharp decisions and innovative solutions are desperately needed to overturn the gloomy predictions of humanity’s future.

On this occasion, the BlockStart team invited some experts and startup representatives to explore how blockchain solutions can incentivize sustainable behaviour and contribute to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We intend to clarify the doubts that are prevalent about the environmental effects of blockchain and present the cases of blockchain-based technologies for positive environmental effects and sustainable development. 

  • What potential does blockchain have to reach the Sustainable Development Goals? 
  • Can blockchain-based solutions help to navigate climate change?
  • How can we utilize the blockchain to incentivize sustainable behaviour?

These, and more questions will be discussed by the great panel of experts:

  • Katherine Foster, Community Director & Fintech Lead at Open Earth Foundation; and a Member of the Consultative Working Group for ESMA’s Financial Innovation Standing Committee
  • Troy MacDonald, Chief Executive Officer of HyFi Corp, a decentralized finances (DeFi) exchange marketplace utilizing blockchain technology;
  • Haroldas Pakalniskis, CEO at Brokoli Network, a company that seeks to offset the existing negative climate impact from cryptocurrency – and reverse it.
  • Antonio Jesús Jara Valera, CEO at Hopu, a company, specializing in air quality monitoring and climate change impact assessment
  • André L. Vanyi-RobinFounder and CEO at, a SaaS software platform that provides tracking of CO2 savings and Kilograms of packaging recovered
