The Social Impact and Sustainability Working Group works on identifying tools and frameworks to tackle global challenges and ensure a prosperous, sustainable, and equitable world for future generations. Since its inception, it has dedicated most of its efforts to identify projects that generate social impact and address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through blockchain/DLT applications.

 

Objectives

Our mission is to accelerate the fulfillment of the SDGs by bringing clarity and interoperability to blockchain-related tools, frameworks and concepts. We leverage member expertise and networks to identify tools and technologies and make them highly accessible to projects and organizations tackling social and environmental issues, such as climate change, poverty, inequality, food waste, corruption, and other areas covered by the SDGs.
