Zumo joins forces with Crypto Carbon Ratings Institute (CCRI) to combat the carbon footprint of the new wave of crypto funds
  • Zumo, the B2B digital assets infrastructure prioritising compliance and sustainability, has announced a new strategic partnership with Crypto Carbon Ratings Institute (CCRI), which provides data on the carbon exposure of investments and business activities related to blockchain.

This is set to grow further with the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) now also accepting crypto fund products.
