NEW RELEASE

Voluntary Ecological Markets (VEM) Overview – Volume 2

The Global Blockchain Business Council’s (GBBC) InterWork Alliance (IWA) is pleased to announce the release of the second version of the Voluntary Ecological Markets (VEM) Overview.

This overview establishes a model set of standards for tokenization, contractual extensions, workflows, and analytics for voluntary ecological markets. These standards are based on the IWA’s Token Taxonomy Framework, and intend to serve as foundations for using distributed ledger technologies (DLT) to create an auditable and scalable ecosystem for voluntary ecological markets.

This overview is intended as an introduction and basis for further dialogue and cooperation with all relevant stakeholders in the ecosystem. The goal is to cultivate further cooperative efforts on the keystone elements and best practices for tokenization of ecological assets, with the intention to align around a common governance set of standards, specifications, and classification systems.

We encourage members interested in the GBBC and IWA networks to reach out and engage with us as we move the conversation forward.
