SETTING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS IN SUSTAINABILITY & BEYOND
SMART CONTRACTS = SMART BUSINESS
WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN?
In the simplest of terms, a blockchain is a time-stamped series of immutable records of data that is managed by a cluster of computers not owned by any single entity. Each of these blocks of data (i.e., block) is secured and bound to each other using cryptographic principles (i.e., chain).
Blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a list of records. Each record is called a block, and each block contains the history of every block that came before it.
Authors Don and Alex Tapscott of a book titled Blockchain Revolution describe the blockchain as “an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value.”
WHAT IS DISTRIBUTED LEDGER TECHNOLOGY “DLT"?
Distributed ledger technology (DLT) is a digital system for recording the transaction of assets in which the transactions and their details are recorded in multiple places simultaneously.
WHAT IS A SMART CONTRACT?
A smart contract is a computer program or a transaction protocol, respectively, which is intended to execute automatically, control, or document respectively legally relevant events and actions according to the terms of a contract, of an agreement, or a negotiation. The objectives of smart contracts are the reduction of need in trusted intermediators, arbitrations and enforcement costs, fraud losses, and the reduction of malicious and accidental exceptions.
HOW DOES BLOCKCHAIN SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES?
Blockchain allows for tracking any value or asset (tangible or intangible) throughout its lifecycle. Transparency in supply chain tracking gives producers a bird's-eye view into their value chain, supporting them to guarantee the proper handoff of third-party assets and final product labeling.
Additionally, it hosts the possibility of creating a transparent ecosystem, where stakeholders, regulators, and auditors can verify the production processes efficiently, reducing complexity.
Blockchain can track the production progression, record the information, and show previous records. Therefore, it can significantly expand the potential of sustainable and ethical production and consumption of any commodity globally, supporting circle-economy models.
Sustainability has gone from a ‘nice-to-have to an almost absolute necessity. Nielsen reports that 66% of global consumers and 73% of millennials are willing to pay more for sustainable goods. By tokenizing sustainability values and allowing consumers to see the source of their carbon offset print, the growth opportunities increase relative to the consumers’ standards development. Investing today in tools that support that aim cost-efficiently will set the track for the thriving business of tomorrow.
HOW DOES BLOCKCHAIN IMPROVE DATA MANAGEMENT?
Managing data in silos leads to suboptimal procedures and critical reconciliation issues. Essential information can be appended conveniently to a blockchain and exchanged securely across business lines, operations, and stakeholders. Blockchain is the go-to technology for sharing information when trust and transparency are at stake.
HOW DOES BLOCKCHAIN REDUCE COSTS?
Blockchain technology can significantly reduce operating costs across sustainable circular-economy systems, enhancing supply chain management and reducing the risk of double-counting and greenwashing. While peer-to-peer distributed ledgers broadly strengthen supply chain management and sustainable claims, improvements in data processing, immediate cost savings from new kinds of Just-In-Time inventory management, and improved trust and interactions among stakeholders are also part of the expenses reductions’ benefits. Blockchain provides a lightweight and easy to integrate layer for data reconciliation across service lines and operations that ensures the quality of sustainable production standards.

RECORDS ARE IMMUTABLE
Under no circumstance can a participate tamper with the transaction after it has been recorded on the ledger. If a transaction is found to have an error, a new transaction will be added to reverse the error, and all transactions are automatically approved by the network participants, with direct access to the records.
Verity customers have access to the distributed ledger, that ensures immutable transactions. Records are recorded only once, and shared with all the authorized participants, eliminating the duplication of efforts.
A set of rules, to speed up transactions is called a smart contract. These smart contracts define conditions, set standards, and are stored on the blockchain to will automatically execute the tasks according to the processes that were fed and the mandates that were programmed.
