We at Climate Futures strongly believe our planet needs our help. As a climate change project developer and portfolio manager we specialize in the global market for carbon credits. We are bringing emissions trading and carbon credits to the crypto-community and individuals who would not otherwise have access to the complex market for emission reductions. With the release of our 1PLANET token, we will support climate projects around the world and enable token users to offset their own carbon footprint which will help our planet’s environment.
Climate Futures brings Climate Protection to the Blockchain!
It’s time for the people of the world to take action without waiting for Governments that are not doing enough to reduce the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions that cause Climate Change. Our 1PLANET platform gives YOU, the PEOPLE, the ability to take action against climate change by directly supporting clean energy and forest conservation projects around the world. By backing each 1PLANET token with carbon credits from these projects we provide tangible utility and value to each 1PLANET token.
Our 1PLANET solution is straightforward: We back a VIRTUAL crypto-token with a VIRTUAL eco-asset (carbon credit) produced by a REAL climate project. Users of the 1PLANET platform can easily estimate their CO2 footprint, enabling them to neutralize their unavoidable climate impacts with our 1PLANET tokens. Our portfolio of climate projects around the world consists of high quality projects with positive social and environmental benefits. Our blockchain platform will give users complete transparency regarding which project each 1PLANET supports and uses for offsetting, and eventually users can choose themselves which project(s) will reduce their CO2 footprint.
From businesses to individuals, we all need to play our part in caring for the Earth: We only have 1PLANET!
Climate Change Impacts are getting stronger as we continue to burn fossil fuels and emit Greenhouse Gases like CO2.
We are witnessing the warmest years on record with unprecedented climate catastrophes, and damage to ecosystems and animal species.

Token Utility & Generation
1Planet Token – Powering our Climate Protection
1PLANET tokens will power our decentralized “crypto-carbon finance” platform. It is an application-specific token, built on top of the existing Ethereum blockchain. 1PLANET tokens will allow anyone to support climate projects that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, unlike non crypto solutions, buyers of our 1PLANET token have the options to bank (store in wallet), transfer, or utilize our 1PLANET tokens in the future for offsetting. After each 1PLANET token is utilized for offsetting it will return to our Token Reserve and the corresponding carbon credits from our project portfolio are also retired/burned.
Our Token Reserve will be utilized to continue sales of tokens through our 1PLANET platform for carbon offsetting purposes and to provide general liquidity to the market. Our platform can easily integrate into partners’ platforms using Application Program Interface (API) functionality.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the 1Planet Token?
The 1PLANET Token is an application-specific token, built on top of the existing Ethereum blockchain. 1PLANET tokens will exclusively be used by Climate Futures and our partners to support climate projects that will reduce GHG emissions for customers, in order to improve the carbon balance of our planet and reduce the effects of climate change for future generations.
Are 1Planet tokens securities?
1Planet tokens are not intended to be a currency, security, or any other kind of financial instrument. 1PLANET tokens are representative tokens that allow the user to offset their carbon footprint. In the USA carbon offsets are unregulated commodities and there have been several CFTC and SEC decisions on this matter as part of the Dodd-Frank Act. In the EU voluntary carbon offsets are not regulated by MIFID II. Please refer to our whitepaper for more details.
What does the 1Planet token represent?
Most crypto-tokens do not represent assets. A 1PLANET token represents a digitally traded commodity: carbon credits. Carbon credits were first available in 2005 as part of the Kyoto Protocol UN agreement. Today their usage has spread around the world, but the users are mainly large companies and governments. 1PLANET allows anyone to easily access and use carbon credits. 10 1PLANET tokens equals 1 carbon credit, i.e. a 1PLANET token = 100 kg of CO2 and 1 carbon credit = 1 metric ton of of CO2. Our carbon credits are created by projects certified by the 2 main global standards in use today: The Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and the UN Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) standard.
How much is a 1Planet token at launch?
Please see our whitepaper and website for details as we get closer to the 1PLANET platform launch.
What is the total number of 1Planet tokens?
Climate Futures will create 150 million 1PLANET Tokens, representing 15 million carbon offsets. Target of 80 million to enter circulation shortly after the token launch and circa 50 million will be in the Token Reserve. See whitepaper for details.
What can I do with my tokens?
The 1PLANET token allows you to 1) easily take action against climate change and support environmental projects; 2) offset the climate impact of your business and lifestyle; and 3) use them with our participating partners products and services.
What will happen with unsold tokens?
Unsold tokens stay in our Token Reserve for future sales through our platform.
How is Climate Futures unique in the emissions trading and blockchain space?
Climate Futures is a climate and environment company first and foremost. Blockchain technology allows us to bring the carbon market to a new demographic that would not normally be able to participate due to transaction costs and high barriers to entry. It also allows us to disrupt the traditional brokerage and exchange models for carbon credits, while providing additional transparency for the buyer that is not always available under traditional business models.
What is a carbon credit?
A carbon credit is an independently verified virtual certificate from a climate project that reduces GHG emissions and is approved by 2 main standards: VCS or CDM. Both standards can be used for voluntary carbon offsetting, which is the purpose of 1PLANET. One carbon credit equals 1 ton of CO2 reductions in both standards. By allowing approved and verified projects to issue carbon credits that can be sold, these projects are then financially supported for reducing GHG emissions such as CO2.
What is a carbon footprint?
A carbon footprint is an estimate of the climate change impact of activity measured in the emissions of GHGs (such as CO2) to the atmosphere – such as making a product, living a lifestyle, or a company’s operations. Our 1PLANET platform allows users to balance their carbon footprint on an aggregated basis through our user account, or on a per transaction basis with our partners’ e-commerce platforms.
How much carbon do I emit and how many 1PLANET tokens do I need?
The average American lifestyle emits 16.4 metric tons of CO2 in 1 year. At launch this would cost a user about $160 to be carbon neutral for one year, or about $12 a month, which is less than 1 cocktail in most bars! Imagine, by buying only 1 drink’s worth of 1PLANETs a month you can help save the planet! 🙂 “Above average” lifestyles (e.g. frequent travel, large cars, etc.) will emit more emissions and our carbon footprint calculator will allow you to easily estimate your climate impact.
What is the team’s background?
Climate Futures was originally founded in 2005 by Jesse Uzzell and the team has over 50 years of combined experience in climate advisory, brokerage and project development services for different clients. We have participated in over 100 climate projects covering almost all project types, sectors, and greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O, PFCs, etc.). Over the years the CF team has helped develop 4 different project portfolios for different clients, including our own portfolio. These portfolios were eventually purchased by e.g. Barclays UK, Morgan Stanley, Mercuria, and the Norwegian Government.
Why is Climate Futures a company and not a non-profit or NGO?
Carbon markets and emissions trading were created for companies and built on the foundations of capitalism and good environmental economics. Climate Futures is a USA registered company and we strongly believe that in order to be agents of change we need to participate in our own society, and support it through a solid business capable of hiring staff and by paying our fair share of taxes. Furthermore, our experience shows us that businesses are able to accomplish more with less and be a driving force for good when the right incentives are there. Carbon markets and eco-markts provide such incentives. NGOs and non-profits have their role to play in society but companies are the economic engine of the world, and the most sustainable environmental projects also provide an economic incentive to the participants. Lastly, non-profits cannot legally sell carbon credits (a commodity) as a tax deduction opportunity for companies or individuals in the USA.
Are you partnered with an existing Carbon Credit Exchange?
No, currently we do not see the need for this. We do not see the point of building a “de- centralized blockchain exchange” on top of a centralized carbon credit exchange. Our 1PLANET model disrupts traditional OTC brokerage and centralized exchanges. We have the experience and ability to originate our own carbon credits for 1PLANET from climate projects that we can develop and/or perform our own due diligence on. Through our international networks we can partner with organizations active in the countries where we want to support or establish climate projects without relying on centralized exchanges. See our Partners for some examples.
