Gnosis Chain is a fast and energy-efficient Ethereum-compatible blockchain. Gnosis Chain is already orders-of-magnitude more energy efficient than Ethereum and other similar proof-of-work chains. Despite this, the Gnosis Chain team has decided to go a step further by offsetting 10 times their organizational and network emissions!
By partnering with us, Gnosis Chain is investing in our verified projects. These verifications & standards are a testament to the strong co-benefits of the projects, including biodiversity protection and social programs for local communities.

By volunteering to offset these emissions, Gnosis Chain is supporting quality, third-party certified projects with a range of additional social and environmental benefits.
Offsetra performed a corporate carbon footprinting (CCF) analysis of the Gnosis Chain network and its company operations. This analysis was performed across emissions Scopes 1-3, as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. These emissions estimates are defined in more detail below.
Scope 1 Emissions
0 Tonnes (0%)
Scope 1 encompasses direct emissions from resources under the organization's control (e.g. combustion of fuels to produce energy).
Scope 2 Emissions
5.08 Tonnes (20%)
Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions associated with the purchase and consumption of energy.(1) 5.08T CO2e - Electricity consumed by staking nodes.
Scope 3 Emissions
20.26 Tonnes (80%)
Scope 3 encompasses emissions from sources which are not directly controlled by the organization, but are still related to the organization's activities.(1) 4.19T CO2e - Lifecycle of hardware and energy consumption of validator nodes securing the network.(2) 16.07T CO2e - Home-office energy consumption for distributed team of employees.
For transparency and accountability, offsets are verified and retired on a third-party registry or blockchain. Click to download and view.
