Should the following Tier 3: up to $5,000 USD in MANA, 3 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Platform Contributor category be approved?


Did you know that Ethereum has the same carbon footprint as Ireland (39.18 Mt CO2/y) and consumes the same amount of energy as Chile (82.49 TWh/y)? Carbon footprint is related i.e to the consumption of fossil fuels, electricity consumption.

Global climate crisis is undeniable and alarming. Therefore, sustainability isn´t a ‘nice to have’ but a prerequisite for future business success.

We intend to calculate the carbon footprint of DCL infrastructure for 2021, which would position the DAO as an industry pioneer in terms of sustainability.

Once the carbon footprint is calculated, we{ll generate a report with the results and an action plan for its users and the company itself, in order to reduce and offset the greenhouse gas emissions.

Beneficiary address



We want to calculate DCL´s carbon footprint and to design a detailed action plan to reduce and offset its emissions. It is crucial to measure in order to improve and become a more sustainable and responsible community

The calculation will be according to ISO 14.064.1:2018 (latest version), a world-renowned standard which details principles and requirements for designing, developing, managing and reporting organization-level GHG inventories.

Benefits of a GHG Inventory:
