We are committed to providing value for our community through partnerships with exciting projects across the blockchain ecosystem. Today we are pleased to announce a partnership with Nori, an organization on a mission to mitigate and reverse climate change through carbon removal.
How it works
Nori’s marketplace enables users to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide through the buying and selling of carbon offset credits bundled as NFTs. This financial mechanism creates fresh opportunities for climate innovation. Their focus is centered on growing the financial incentive and supply of carbon removal credits, which comprise just 5% of the supply in offset markets.
With Nori’s API for carbon removal, users can choose to pay for carbon removal to negate the impacts of the product or service they are paying for, whether it’s shipping, manufacturing, or operation. Currently, Nori sources carbon removal by supporting farmers adopting regenerative agriculture projects that are sequestering CO2 from the atmosphere.
Blind Boxes x Nori
This collaboration with Nori will empower creators and collectors on the Blind Boxes platform to do good with the proceeds from sales of NFTs on our platform. Through a UI-integrated mechanism on the Blind Boxes platform, artists will soon be able to earmark a portion of their proceeds towards purchasing Nori Carbon Removal Tonnes (NRTs), thus creating a climate positive future for their works on the blockchain.
Says Anita Angelica Moore, Co-founder & CEO, Blind Boxes:
“Partnering with Nori is a first step towards addressing climate change, a complex global challenge. At Blind Boxes, we are keen to be at the forefront of efforts that will positively impact on the blockchain industry and the society at large. We look forward to offering creators the option to earmark some of their proceeds to do good for the environment.”
Says Alexsandra Guerra, Co-founder and Director of Corporate Development, Nori:
“We’re excited to work with Blind Boxes in merging the growing trend of artists using NFTs to sell unique works with the growing concern to address climate impacts of technologies like blockchain. At Nori, we believe that we don’t have to choose between technology innovation and doing what’s right for the environment.“
Nori is on a mission to enable global engagement for mitigating and reversing climate change via carbon removal. By providing a marketplace where anyone in the world can pay for and get paid for removing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide, Nori acts as a financial mechanism that will create new opportunities for climate innovation and carbon removal. Nori focuses specifically on growing the financial incentive and supply of carbon removal. Carbon removal credits currently represent less than 5% of the supply in voluntary offset markets, the rest being credits for emissions avoidances and reductions. In addition to growing supply for carbon removal, Nori aims to streamline and scale access for demand to carbon removal credits using its API. With Nori’s API for carbon removal, customers of any goods and/or service provider can select to pay for carbon removal to negate the impacts of the product or service they are paying for, whether it’s shipping, manufacturing, or operation. Currently, Nori sources carbon removal by supporting farmers adopting regenerative agriculture projects that are sequestering CO2 from the atmosphere. In the future, Nori will enable various methods of carbon removal.
