About JustCarbon

JustCarbon will become a highly sophisticated carbon marketplace where organisations and individuals can offset their carbon emissions with the purchase of verified Carbon Tokens. JustCarbon will only purchase carbon credits from the producers that have been verified to the highest standards by a recognised verifier. Everything will be built on the JustCarbon platform and blockchain. Buyers, Consumer or Wholesalers, will be able to retire, sell or purchase more Carbon Tokens, offsetting their historic or future carbon impact. The platform will be administered by governance token holders to ensure this is truly a marketplace for the people and the planet. With highly respected and influential contributors, JustCarbon is looking to change the landscape of the current carbon marketplace for the better.
