CCRI GmbH donates UNICEF Luxembourg its sustainability API to assess the impact of cryptocurrency donations on the environment.
CCRI GmbH is a German company providing data on sustainability aspects of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologiesto technology businesses as well as financial institutions, and organizations managing and receiving crypto funds. The co-founders of the company have researched the environmental impact of both holding and transactioning cryptocurrencies for over five years and now serve a wide range of customers to help them understand the electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of their crypto-related activities. As such, CCRI is pleased to donate its sustainability API, covering more than 20 cryptocurrencies, to UNICEF Luxembourg, enabling the child rights organisation to assess the environmental impact of its cryptocurrency donations.
Founded in 1979, the Luxembourg-based NGO focuses on improving children’s welfare and on raising funds for UNICEF’s projects and programs around the globe. UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence.
UNICEF Luxembourg integrates the CCRI sustainability API to assess the environmental impact of cryptocurrency donations received to gain transparency on its carbon footprint. This enables UNICEF Luxembourg to receive cryptocurrency donations in a responsible way and encourages potential donors to favour less energy intensive blockchains in order and to raise more funds to help many more children worldwide.
“We are very happy to enable UNICEF Luxembourg to assess the GHG emissions associated with their crypto donations with the help of the CCRI sustainability API.”Ulrich Gallersdörfer, CCRI’s CEO
“The digital world is now an irreversible fact of our lives and comes with its own challenges for children. CCRI’s donation in kind of its sustainability API is an invaluable tool to assess the impact cryptocurrency donations have on climate and the children who are most at risk from the consequences of climate change.”Sandra Visscher, UNICEF Luxembourg Executive Director.
