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 an association under the French law of 1901, whose purpose is to share experiences between the blockchain ecosystem and sustainable development actors.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by the United Nations member states in September 2015 and define 169 targets to be achieved by 2030.

The missions of Blockchain for Good are to create and update an “economic, social and environmental” intelligence tool, to encourage and support the implementation of experiments in the form of partnerships, to share feedback, and finally, to promote a legislative and normative framework adapted to the innovation context.

Database

On the occasion of the June 2020 publication of the white paper “Blockchain & Sustainable Development”, in partnership with the Louis Bachelier Institute and Coreum, Blockchain for Good, (at the time Blockchain-X) created a database listing some 350 blockchain projects around the world that contribute, directly or indirectly, to the pursuit of one or more Sustainable Development Goals.

Since 2018, PositiveBlockchain.io has created and maintained, with a network of partners of which our association is now a part, an open database of some 1,000 Blockchain and sustainable development projects and a knowledge platform led by a community of “Blockchain Positivists” who explore the potential of blockchains for social and environmental impact :

Curation

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
Number of active projects : 692
