We believe the Polygon Team will succeed in this goal and surpass the competitors in this ambitious goal, they have been planning it thoroughly since the Polygon chain inception.

Polygon - A Green Blockchain Alternative

The Polygon Team is working to eliminate all of the network's carbon debt dating back to its founding, with the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2022. Every transaction is accounted for and its environmental impact is offset, whether it's an NFT coined by an artist, a DeFi trade that enables individual economic sovereignty, or a token linked to a project on our network. Polygon will seek to become the first blockchain to be climate positive once this goal is met.

They believe the answer is "yes," but they must act quickly to ensure that it is. The Polygon Team is convinced that Web3 is a game-changing technology that will render the present Internet era obsolete. However, they acknowledge that in designing that future, they must take into account the broader context of what technological advancement has meant for the world.
Polygon's Ethereum scaling solutions and investments in cutting-edge zero-knowledge technology have already positioned it as a leader in enrolling the next billion users to Web3. This dedication to sustainability recognizes the critical role they play in the ecosystem, as well as their responsibility to lead by example.

The Polygon Team has pledged over 20$ million to offset carbon footprints for their blockchain and become carbon negative, to community initiatives such as encouraging the Polygon ecosystem partners to join them in this endeavour, to bring in resources for the ecosystem partners who want to offset their carbon footprint and towards donations for NGOs that fight climate change.
