The Digital Carbon Ecosystem targets ‘building a digital low carbon ecosystem to reduce global carbon emissions and create a low carbon life.’ By using an array of IoT devices in conjunction with VeChainThor’s blockchain, the carbon emissions from businesses and individuals can be tracked. Individuals are incentivized with carbon credits for lowering their carbon footprint.

Following the integration, registered users on the Digital Carbon Ecosystem can now book the healthcare services provided by Renji using carbon credits. This is quite significant because the hospital handles over 2.1 million outpatient and emergency cases every year.

In another news, Norway in a Box announced during the Sino-Norwegian Cultural Exchangethat their products will go live on the Bright Code. Bright Code is a consumer confidence index platform that allows consumers to access data and learn about the origin and lifecycle of their products.
