March 7, 2023: Vancouver, BC – ShiftCarbon (formerly Tracesafe) (CSE: SHFT | OTCPINK: SHIFF) (the “Company”), a global leader in the Internet of Things (IoT) platforms and an innovator in end-to-end decarbonization solutions, has announced the launch of a new cloud platform designed for measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) automation of carbon offset projects.
The new MRV automation platform aims to promote and make the creation of voluntary carbon credits easier, more transparent, and more accessible by significantly reducing the cost and complexity of data collection for some of these projects. The company’s world-class IoT offering is at the core of the new MRV automation platform. This platform marks a major milestone in ShiftCarbon’s effort to achieve more accurate MRV, combat climate change, and promote the opportunity of carbon credits to a broader market.
"Our mission is to make a positive impact on the world by facilitating sustainable development through technology,” said Qayyum Rajan, Head of Carbon Products at ShiftCarbon. This new platform for MRV automation is another step toward achieving that goal. By enabling more accurate and transparent emissions measuring, we can ensure that carbon offset projects are properly accounted for and receive the carbon credits they deserve. The majority of these projects not only help combat climate change but also improve the lives of people in communities around the world."
The World Bank highlights: “Digital MRV will be a game changer! Current methods to measure, report, and verify emission reductions can be costly and time-consuming, often relying on manual operations. Digital technologies can streamline data collection, processing, and quality control in MRV processes, helping to reduce the cost and time to ERC issuance.” ShiftCarbon is proud to be collaborating with leading carbon credit creators to expand carbon credit capture through the use of intelligent and cost-effective IoT sensors, which provide real-time data and further improve the accuracy and transparency of the carbon capture process.
The Company wishes to announce that it has granted 500,000 stock options (the “Options”) to its independent director, Murray Tevlin, at an exercise price of $0.10 per common share expiring two years from the date of grant.
In addition, the Company has granted 500,000 stock Options to a certain consultant of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 per common share expiring five years from the date of the grant. The Options are granted in accordance with the Company’s Stock Option Plan.
