Our Commitment

21Shares believes that the crypto market should be accessible to everyone while also being sustainable.

Since its founding in 2018, 21Shares has been fully carbon neutral with all commercial operations, travel, office usage, on-chain crypto transactions, and upstream components required to make our products and business function offset by green initiatives.

Projects include cleaner power generation, reforestation efforts, and coral reef protection, all designed to protect the world for future generations.

Minimize Our Footprint

We assess the carbon emissions that stem from our business operations. Once we collect enough data, our partner myclimate calculates and implements effective ways to minimize our carbon footprint.

Sustainably Neutral

We remain carbon neutral by monitoring and reporting our progress. When we build new products, we include them in our calculations and our carbon offsetting program.

Carbon Calculations

We assess the company’s entire transaction history in order to calculate the carbon emissions from our products. This record includes every type of transaction. Once we have determined our carbon footprint, we calculate the carbon permits we need in order to offset our emissions. Our accredited partner myclimate validates our data and uses high-quality carbon permits to offset our emissions. These carbon offsets support projects that adhere to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) standards. We continue to offset our transactions every year.


We have developed a rigorous strategy to become carbon neutral.

We continually assess the environmental impact of our products and our business operations. Using this data, we use high-quality carbon permits to offset our emissions. We calculate our footprint using the method outlined in section 2.2 of our methodology paper.
