SINGAPORE, Nov. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- It was October 2018 when VeChain launched the first Digital Carbon Ecosystem project, the signing ceremony of which was done under the witness of His Majesty King Harald V and Her Majesty Queen Sonja of Norway. Since then, the VeChain Foundation has worked on multiple carbon-related projects across the EU and China and provided enterprises with blockchain-enabled sustainability solutions. As one of the most eco-friendly public blockchains, VeChainThor is committed to helping global enterprises and governments achieve Sustainable Development Goals ("SDGs") efficiently, quickly and at low cost.
In pursuit of this vision and mission, we are happy to announce that, as of Oct. 26, 2021, Mr Antonio Senatore has officially joined the VeChain Foundation as Head of Technology for SDGs, with the immediate goal of building VeChain's technical force focused on delivering SDGs and related Ecosystems.
Antonio Senatore: Former Deloitte Global Blockchain CTO
Through his previous role as Global Blockchain CTO at Deloitte, Antonio has worked with the VeChain Foundation in an advisory capacity since 2018, through the launch of the VeChainThor mainnet and several solutions in the area of NFTs, business digital identity, supply chain and traceability. His experience and understanding of our technologies makes Antonio an invaluable addition to the team.
On joining VeChain, Antonio said:
"I feel like it is a natural step for me to continue my journey fully committed to the VeChain Foundation, focusing on SDGs.
17 SDGs form the core of the global blueprint for delivering the sustainable development agenda and I feel both proud and passionate to be able to give my contribution towards meeting those goals, thanks to the VeChain Foundation and its technology.
My goal will be to provide organizations and governments with a platform to track, measure, verify, and progress around those goals. Utilising VeChainThor, a blockchain network taking a major role in delivering carbon emissions and sustainability related applications, is the right move for me. Public blockchain enables the level of trust and transparency needed to deliver on global commitments towards SDGs and drive meaningful change using trustless data. I'm looking forward to seeing what the future brings"
