毕马威推出了可追踪温室气体排放的区块链

2020-10-9 12:50

 

本周早些时候,毕马威宣布推出区块链气候核算基础设施(CAI),旨在帮助毕马威的客户更准确地衡量和管理他们的温室气体排放。新的区块链平台满足了企业报告可持续发展实践和满足环境、社会和公司治理(ESG)目标的日益增长的需求。


环境、社会和治理解决方案使得一个透明的信息披露对投资者的进展,帮助追踪温室气体排放。为了支持可靠和透明的数据排放报告,“CAI将整合组织现有的系统,包括物联网传感器,与外部数据源,以建立一个可验证的排放轨迹和区块链上记录的偏移量。”其他来源的数据和分析模型也将被用于得出气候风险对商业运作和财务业绩的影响。


为了这个项目,毕马威与Context Labs、Prescriptive Data和Allinfra合作。Context Labs是一家区块链公司,提供数据来源,确认信息的来源。说明性数据有一个软件解决方案,跟踪建筑运营,包括用电量和使用物联网设备的排放。我们之前曾报道过一家名为Allinfra的区块链公司,该公司致力于将基础设施和环境资产进行标记。除了为香港的一个房地产投资信托公司做太阳能电池板的标记外,该公司还参与了新加坡中央银行数字货币试验的一个用例。


毕马威(KPMG)并不是第一个推出解决方案旨在透明报告温室气体排放。今年早些时候,梅赛德斯-奔驰披露与区块链初创公司Circulor合作,开展了一个追踪钴供应链二氧化碳排放的项目。Circulor正在与沃尔沃进行类似的项目合作。最近,CarbonBlock因其提高保时捷供应链温室气体排放透明度的解决方案而通过即插即用赢得了全球创新奖。它通过提供生产过程中使用的所有材料的碳足迹来实现这一点。这两种解决方案都可能对毕马威的工作起到补充作用。


就这一领域的知名企业而言,Interwork联盟正专注于制定碳信用额的象征性标准。它的成员包括埃森哲,微软和区块链能源公司。它的创始人之一Xpansiv是CBLmarkets的子公司,可能是Allinfra的竞争对手。


同时,由于毕马威拥有广泛而多样的客户名单,因此进入这个市场可能会大大增加区块链二氧化碳可追溯技术的覆盖面。

 

Earlier this week, KPMG announced the launch of a blockchain Climate Accounting Infrastructure (CAI) designed to enable KPMG’s clients to more accurately measure and manage their greenhouse gas emissions. The new blockchain platform addresses the increasing demand for corporations to report sustainability practices and meet environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) targets.

The solution enables a transparent disclosure to investors of ESG progress and helps to track greenhouse gas emissions. To support reliable and transparent reports of data emissions, “CAI will integrate an organization’s existing systems, including IoT sensors, with external data sources to establish a verifiable trail of emissions and offsets recorded on blockchain”. Other sources of data and analytical models will also be used to draw the effect of climate risks on business operations and financial performance.

KPMG collaborated with Context Labs, Prescriptive Data and Allinfra, for the project. Context Labs is a blockchain firm that provides data provenance, confirming from where the information came. Prescriptive Data has a software solution that tracks building operations, including power consumption and emissions using IoT devices. We’ve previously written about Allinfra, a blockchain firm that aims to tokenize infrastructure and environmental assets. Apart from tokenizing solar panels for a Hong Kong real estate investment trust, it participated in a use case for Singapore’s central bank digital currency trials.

KPMG is not the first to launch a solution aimed at transparently reporting greenhouse gas emissions. Earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz disclosed working with blockchain startup Circulor on a project for tracking CO2 emissions in the cobalt supply chain. Circulor is working with Volvo on similar projects. More recently, CarbonBlock won the Global Innovation Award by Plug and Play for its solution to increase the transparency of greenhouse emissions in the Porsche’s supply chain. It achieves this by providing the carbon footprints of all materials used during production. Both of these solutions could potentially complement KPMG’s work.

In terms of big names in this area, the Interwork Alliance is focusing on token standards for carbon credits. Its membership includes Accenture, Microsoft and blockchain energy firms. One of its founders is Xpansiv, a subsidiary of CBLmarkets, which might be a competitor to Allinfra.

Meanwhile, KPMG’s entrance into this market may significantly increase the reach of blockchain CO2 traceability technology due to the company’s extensive and diverse client list.
