On August 16, 2023, the UNJSPF became a member of the Blockchain for Sustainable Future (BC100+) initiative. BC100+ brings together various organizations to raise awareness about the potential of blockchain for social impact and sustainability. This initiative aims at promoting quality debate, raising awareness, and clarifying the opportunities of blockchain’s role in realizing the UN Charter Values and the 2030 Agenda.
Dino Dell’Accio, Chief Information Officer at the Fund, commented: “Signing the BC100+ Manifesto is in line with the Fund’s modernization efforts. Through this initiative, we commit to leverage blockchain technology’s transformative potential for social good and applying a set of guiding principles in its implementation”.
The initiative accepts applications from a diverse range of organizations from three target groups: blockchain projects and experts, UN offices with blockchain projects, and SDG projects with or without blockchain applications.
BC100+ is a global initiative, under the High Patronage of H.E. Csaba Kőrösi, President of the 77th UN General Assembly, convening the blockchain ecosystem to the broader efforts of UN agencies and global initiatives in support of the UN Charter values and the Sustainable Development Goals.
