By Dexter Cousins on 20/04/2022

Blockchain to empower Australians to tackle carbon emissions.

Episode 107 of Fintech Chatter Podcast with Dexter Cousins features Guy Dickinson, CEO of BetaCarbon.

BetaCarbon is a climate tech start-up at the intersection of environmental impact and blockchain technology.

Their mission is to increase the demand for high-quality Australian carbon credits, in turn bringing new green projects online and accelerating the path to net-zero.

They have created a digital carbon credit (BCAU) that represents 1kg of carbon removed from the atmosphere by quality, monitored green projects.

These digital credits are tokens that can be bought and traded as an investment, like crypto, or can be accumulated and kept to help balance your emissions.

Dexter chats to Guy about:

- The challenges of tokenising Carbon credits
- Empowering every Australian to help reduce carbon emissions
- Leaving the safety of a Big Bank career for a startup
- Embracing and elevating the next generation of talent
- Dealing with regulators in a pioneering asset class
