The race is on to provide clients, regulators, and the public with confidence that blockchain and cryptocurrency can be consistent with a healthy planet.
Brane is proud to be leading the charge.
In July 2021, Brane became the world’s first cryptocurrency custodian to sign on to the Crypto Climate Accord — a private sector-led initiative inspired by the Paris Climate Agreement, focused on reducing the environmental footprint of the cryptocurrency sector by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition to committing to net-zero emissions from electricity by 2030, Brane will collaborate with over 100 Accord signatories and supporters to advance the environmental sustainability of cryptocurrency and blockchain.
Brane is certified operationally carbon neutral by Carbonzero, a North American industry leader in greenhouse gas measurement, reduction, and offsetting solutions.
This certification confirms Brane’s purchase of carbon offsets for its 2020 operations, supporting the Ontario Biodiversity Afforestation Project in Northern Ontario. Managed by the Forest Carbon Alliance, this Project re-establishes Boreal and Great Lakes-St Lawrence forest conditions supporting moose, deer, and fish populations.
The Crypto Climate Accord’s early signatories include DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: DMGI) (DMGGF: OTCQB) (FSE: 6AX), an environmentally friendly Canadian blockchain and cryptocurrency company that has pioneered sustainable, non-polluting Bitcoin mining operations and recently made a $3-million strategic investment in Brane.
Brane has assembled a team of leaders from Canada’s tech sector, banks, and governments, united by a mission to build the world’s safest custody solution for digital assets.
Our technology is second to none – but that’s not enough for us. Brane has developed industry-leading risk management and security protocols, based on best practices from established financial institutions.
Combining cutting-edge technology with the security protocols of a financial institution, Brane provides secure custody for a wide range of cryptocurrencies, serving regulated institutional clients – giving us one of the lowest risk profiles in the sector.
But don’t just take our word for it. Our digital asset custody is third-party certified to ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and NIST CSF Tier 4 standards, with SOC 2 assurance underway — some of the most rigorous certifications in the industry.
Brane’s custody solution is enhanced by partnerships with world leaders in related services.
