What is SDG?
In 2015, the United Nations identified 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that countries must embrace to create a healthy planet and an equitable future.

What is Carbon Offsetting?
Carbon offsetting is the key mechanism to stop global warming. Through reforestation efforts and sustainable farming practices, we can fight back against the damage wreaked by gaseous emissions. For their work, farms are entitled to carbon credits. SDGX will purchase those credits to build the basis our carbon exchange.
The International Paris Agreement created guidelines for each member country to limit their carbon footprint. Countries and companies that will fall below their maximum carbon allowance are entitled to sell their credits to buyers seeking an alternative to expensive emission cuts. Likewise, companies can gain credits by developing programs that reduce total carbon.
