Yesterday, on January 14, European Partners for the Environment and Be the SDGs with the support of the European Economic and Social Committee Observatory on SDGs and the EESC Partnership with Civil Society hosted a blockchain technology study and discussion event.
The meeting named “Blockchain and Decentralized Ledger Technologies for the European Green Deal and SDGs” gathered a bunch of outstanding professionals to suggest their ideas and plans to achieve the SDGs with the use of blockchain technology. This meeting is the first in a series of events that should be poured into a large conference at the end of 2020 with the development of the blockchain for social good and social impact investments.
The SDGs - Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - were designed as a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". Seventeen SDGs include work on the environment, human well-being and economy, which should be completed by 2030.
A great deal of effort has already been made to achieve the SDGs and improve the quality of life, environment and economy under the 2030 Agenda, but now the initiative is tripping over a lack of tools to track and manage the transformations. Think tank meeting participants have shown how blockchain can work as a convenient tool for tracking and security. Major experts became speakers at this event. Here were Daniel Azevedo, Director of the Commodities and Trade, Copa-Cogeca; Genevieve Leveille, CEO of AgriLedger, Agri/Fin-Tech, and others. FCE Blockchain CEO Gregory Arzumanian also spoke about his development and technology experience.

The use of blockchain-based software allows to monitor the implementation of obligations and will strengthen confidence in public and private obligations and financing. Supply chains
will become traceable and secure, as well as more effective, because transparency will show all the weak links in the chain.
The transparency and traceability of the blockchain is useful not only for the operation of the business, but also for the protection of human rights. The use of blockchain technology will greatly simplify many tasks to achieve the SDGs. Therefore, it was important for the European Green Deal to combine the ideas and efforts of blockchain experts and developers to build a common plan and find out the best ways to use information technology.
As a result of the event, the Statement in Conclusion of the Think tank will be created. This conclusion will contain all the necessary recommendations of blockchain industry experts for the European Commission and the European Parliament.
We are proud that FCE Blockchain has become part of this initiative. It is important for us to contribute to the overall development of the industry. We hope that working all together, we will see the first results and the first real benefits very soon.
