About Klima & Klima Infinity

Klima Infinity aims to enable organizations and individuals to:

  • Become carbon neutral via a simple interface and experience to offset their carbon footprint;
  • Become climate positive by acting as a perpetual carbon offset accumulator, enabling them to go beyond carbon neutrality;
  • Signal their positive actions to the rest of the world by providing a public dashboard, and using immutable blockchain-based proofs to create transparency around climate-positive actions; and
  • Participate in KlimaDAO’s growth and governance: all holders of KLIMA can participate in KlimaDAO’s governance processes and be an active stakeholder in the ReFi economy.

Co-Benefits:

Metis:

Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time, for both society and our planet. As global emissions continue to rise, so too does awareness of the issue as average, everyday consumers are making big changes in their consumption and purchasing habits. Green initiatives can significantly improve a brand’s value; whether through advertisements, social media pages, or press releases, communicating your green activities will aid in user retention, reputation, and position Metis as an environmental leader next to blockchains such as Polygon, xDAI, and Elrond.

KlimaDAO:

We’re working to build the world’s most efficient carbon market and rapidly scale the capital flowing to high-impact sustainability projects globally. As part of this mission we’ve created a suite of tools to make it easy for anyone, from large corporates to individual consumers, to become climate positive via the support of carbon mitigation and removal projects. A partnership with Metis would further solidify Klima’s role as the premier solution for blockchain-native companies to achieve their sustainability goals.

Partnership Examples:

Eco is a US-based consumer fintech platform designed to replace the everyday consumer’s checking, savings, and credit accounts with a single, easy-to-access balance built on a crypto backend. Activant Capital and L Catterton led the fintech company’s $60 million Series B in July 2021, joining a16z crypto, Founders Fund, Coinbase Ventures, P.Diddy, and Kevin Durant on an all-star cap table.

Deltawave Energy is a blockchain-enabled energy platform that’s powering the next evolution of ESG compliance and financial and carbon reporting for energy companies.

Transak is a developer integration for a fiat-to-crypto payment gateway. This solves the important problem of allowing mainstream people and businesses to access crypto and blockchain. It does this by integrating local compliance, payment methods, and liquidity from around the world. Transak is backed by Consensys, The LAO, Lunex, and Mycelium Ventures.
