Freedom is at the center of the Web3 ethos. Since the Enlightenment, the concern around liberty has been with oppression inflicted on people by other people. But climate change enters the stage as a powerful non-human actor that threatens to exacerbate all the existing injustices and introduce new ones. If we are serious about changing the world for the better, that’s something we simply cannot ignore. That’s why Polygon is going carbon-negative in 2022. This means that every transaction is accounted for and its environmental impact is offset. When this goal is achieved, Polygon will work on becoming the first blockchain to be climate positive. Let’s make meaningful change in the world!
