NEW YORK, NY, Aug. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In an exciting move, EMTECH, an award-winning software company and the first-of-its-kind modern central banking infrastructure provider, today unveiled the GREEN CBDC Framework to help central banks unlock unprecedented value by deploying a central bank digital currency (CBDC).
The announcement comes as a wide range of stakeholders, including central banks and the White House, are calling for energy-efficient methods to bring financial services to consumers and businesses, as the need to reduce the carbon footprint remains essential.
Given the unique role of central banks in the financial sector, the acronym “GREEN” specifies five key principles that EMTECH believes should contextualize their financial stability and risk management mandate. Indeed, there is unprecedented value for central banks in:
Governing for impact
Reinventing trust through transparency
Embracing sustainable energy use in the digital world
Foster innovation with basic infrastructure
Foster inclusive and resilient ecosystems
“EMTECH is making ‘going green’ more convenient for central banks with the GREEN CBDC framework,” said Carmelle Cadet, CEO and Founder of EMTECH. “As part of this, we present an actionable and grounded approach for central banks to harness the value of building trust, adopting sustainable technology while empowering ecosystem innovation. By providing Tier 2 layer infrastructure energy-efficient cash flow, central banks can make the entire financial ecosystem greener by design. We believe this is having an impact.
The launch of GREEN CBDC Framework is a natural step for EMTECH, which already uses environmentally friendly technology to power its solution. Last year, he partnered with Hedera to minimize the power consumption of his solution.
Earlier this month, EMTECH’s CEO was released by NASDAQ on how the CBDC can contribute to a greener future.
“Developed and developing economies can adopt this Framework. A CBDC solution should not put more strain on fragile power infrastructure when operating at scale, and can be a viable step to reduce carbon footprint,” says Cadet.
Cadet will speak extensively about the benefits of EMTECH’s GREEN CBDC at the CBDC 2022 conference in Frankfurt, Germany on August 30. Meanwhile, the EMTECH team is ready to support Central Banks with the GREEN CBDC Toolkit which includes: Framework Adoption, Sandbox Pilot and Ecosystem Engagement. The CBDC platform and basic pre-built APIs are also ready for piloting.
