Bitcoin Carbon Footprint Analysis

Bitcoin Carbon Footprint Analysis

About the study

The Frankfurt School Blockchain Center and INTAS.tech present a flexible carbon-offset model for investors, asset managers, crypto exchanges and custodians. Our model allows to focus the calculation either on the amount of coins held (ownership-based network usage) or on the proportional network usage in relation to the growth of the Bitcoin blockchain during a given period (transaction-based network usage).

Bitcoin Climate Neutrality Investment Standard

Calculation model for determining the carbon footprint of financial products that include Bitcoin in line with Greenhouse Gas Protocol Scope 3 emissions. More information on the methodology is available as part of this report. This approach allows investors, asset managers, crypto exchanges, and custodians to anticipate and comply with regulatory requirements concerning ESG criteria like the European Union’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) at an early stage.
