Neutralizing Solana’s carbon impact

The Solana Foundation is committed to studying the impact of the Solana blockchain, open-sourcing the data, and taking steps to bring the chain’s footprint to zero.

Solana is the first smart-contract layer 1 blockchain with real-time energy emissions tracking, enabling anyone in the world to examine the network’s emissions down to the validator or RPC level.
