Web3 vs Climate Change: Carbon Credits Go Digital with Gregory Landua of the Regen Network

Join Alex Tapscott and Andrew Young as they decode the world of DeFi with special guest Gregory Landua, CEO and Co-Founder of the Regen Network. Listen in as they discuss Gregory’s discovery of Web3 as a potential solution for ecological and social regeneration, overcoming critiques surrounding blockchain energy consumption, addressing counterparty risk with tokenized assets, monitoring to ensure standards of on-chain credits, liquidity formations, and more!

The Regen Network is a climate finance platform incentivizing ecosystem regeneration to combat climate change. The platform aims to provide a sustainable solution to the problematic economic models that promote land degradation, destruction of ecosystems, and fuel climate change. Its Regen Marketplace enables businesses to buy, trade, and retire digital carbon and ecological credits that are backed by industry-leading climate science, while its Regen Registry allows for the development of innovative methodologies to verify ecological credits, including carbon and biodiversity. The Regen Network’s impact has resulted in the retirement of 588,448 carbon credits, coverage of over 15 million hectares of land, the development of 40 innovative measurement methodologies, and created over 2 million new credits in 2023. Before founding the Regen Network, Gregory co-authored the ground-breaking Regenerative Enterprise book, which outlines pathways to achieve ecological and social regeneration through business. Additionally, Gregory co-founded Terra Genesis International and transformed it from a regenerative agricultural consultancy and design firm into a dominant leader in the regenerative movement.

Tune in to the 91st DeFi Decoded episode to hear Alex, Andrew, and Gregory discuss all things Web3 and the Regen Network. What is the Regen Network, and who is it for? How do users feel safe knowing that the carbon credits represent the claims they are backed by? Why is Gregory more focused on the velocity of exchange relating to demand rather than liquidity?
