Spatial Web firm VERSES, YALE and MIT collaborate on Open Climate Platform. is working with scientists at YALE and MIT on the development of Yale University's Open Climate Platform. The Platform was presented at the UN Climate Action Summit and is now being extended beyond carbon.

The Platform creates a global, transparent and integrated climate accounting system.

The scope of the project includes records with scientific consensus of Earth’s ecosystem state as it pertains to carbon budget tracking, climate actor pledges, climate action records and certifications, the transaction of these credits/certificates under international climate markets, and the mobilization of financial capital towards climate action as we strive to achieve the climate targets set in the 2015 Paris Agreement (PA)—i.e. maintaining anthropogenic warming below 1.5C.
