The increasing impact of greenhouse gases on the atmosphere and their perturbation of the climatic order are necessitating a major overhaul of how humanity emits waste gases. All countries and industries now face tough targets for reducing atmospheric pollution. China is arguably facing the greatest challenge of all, having vowed to reach net-zero emissions by 2060, with carbon emissions peaking no later than 2030.

Public blockchain provides an elegant solution to this problem and, when combined with IoT technologies and data quality assurance services, neatly address...
