A state of play analysis examining crypto's environmental impact.
Have you ever thought about how we determine the real-world environmental impact of cryptocurrencies? Where we get our information? How we interpret it? And what we can do to move forwards on an increasingly pivotal issue?
If you’ve ever seen an Elon tweet, you know that the carbon footprint of crypto – and Bitcoin in particular – is a big deal.
In fact, we think it’s a very big deal – one that deserves our urgent, collective attention. We need to demystify this commonly misunderstood topic, and we need to work now to take action together.
So, here to help you get to the facts of the discussion, we’ve prepared an in-depth report – one of the first to comprehensively deconstruct the methodologies and assumptions quantifying the environmental impact of cryptocurrencies – helped by leading researchers in the field.
Based on round-table discussion held by Zumo with input from leading sustainability researchers and cryptocurrency experts including The Crypto Climate Accord, Cambridge University Centre for Alternative Finance, The Green Bitcoin Project, The Digiconomist and TAAL Distributed Information Technologies, our new state of play report summarises and analyses where we are today, and where we go next.
If you’ve ever wondered what Bitcoin is actually doing to the planet, and what we can do about it, this one’s for you!

We hope that this report acts as a springboard for considered debate and informed collective action. Of course, it’s just the beginning – watch this space for further announcements soon on the work we and our partners are doing in this crucial area.
