ESG & Impact

Realising blockchain’s fullest potential

Digital assets and ESG can be a difficult topic to untangle. How can a technology have so much ESG (environmental, social and governance) potential, yet so frequently come under fire for its carbon footprint? Use more – by design? Or use less – yet be less secure? At Zumo, we have been at the forefront of discussions on sustainability and digital assets, and we are passionate about sharing our journey and our learnings with others.

Navigate this page to find out more about our sustainability journey and the actions we are taking as a company across the factors of the ESG imperative, and to play our part in driving sectoral change.
