How do blockchains contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals?
Who is usurping, who is innovating, who is inventing?

Blockchain for Good is a non-profit organization  under the French law of 1901, whose purpose is to enhance, promote, support and contribute to fundamental and applied research in digital innovations, foster and support the sharing of experiences between the blockchains ecosystem and sustainable development actors.

The Association’s means of action are (1) to collect data about blockchain projects with a social and/or environmental impact, (2) to write an analysis report based on this material, (3) to encourage and support the implementation of experiments, to share feedback, and (4) to promote a legislative and normative framework adapted to this context of innovation.

Since 2020, The French associations Blockchain for Good and PositiveBlockchain.io joined forces to create the “open-database of blockchain for good projects”, accessible on positiveblockchain.io.

The aim of the data collection is to reference blockchain projects that relate to the pursuit of one or more Sustainable Development Goals. The 2022 Report is based on this data collection – 700 blockchain projects – and is divided into twelve chapters: Identity & Ownership; Peer-To-Peer Electronic Cash System & Programmable Money; Health, Environment & Climate; Supply Chain & Logistics; Agriculture & Food; Web 3.0, Arts & Sciences; Energy; Government & Democracy; Aid, Charity & Philanthropy; Electronic Communication & Telecommunications; Education & Employment.



This report is based on extensive data collection work, carried out separately since 2018 by the Positive Blockchain association and the Blockchain for Good association, and then jointly since the beginning of 2021.

Available in open data format, this directory of 1286 blockchain initiatives, 692 of which are active in June 2022, is the material from which this report is drawn. Here are a few graphics. 

In January 2023, 300 more projects have been identified and will be updated in a few months.

To help disseminate and share relevant information about Blockchain and sustainability projects, we maintain a list of reports, articles and scientific papers available here :

Total number of projects : 1286
