After the launch of its flagship Klima Infinity product and tokenized carbon dashboard in May this year, KlimaDAO has brought new levels of accessibility and transparency to the carbon markets. Now the project is focused on scaling up, and offering enterprise solutions to the market with the objective of maximizing the flow of climate finance to carbon projects across the globe. Hinckson said:
I am delighted to play a part in the growth and success of an organization like KlimaDAO, which is challenging the way that market-based mechanisms such as the carbon markets can be used to help solve fundamental issues around climate change, biodiversity loss and people's quality of life across the globe.
Sy Zygy, Head of Products at KlimaDAO, said:
We are delighted to be working with Alik in this capacity. Both KlimaDAO and Alik share the sentiment that in order for society to avoid the worst impacts of catastrophic climate change and biodiversity loss, we need to mobilize action immediately, and at an unprecedented scale. Alik's hands-on experience running impactful NGOs that are raising awareness and resources targeted at remedying some of our starkest environmental challenges will be invaluable to KlimaDAO as we continue to scale up.
