“Carbon Market Exchange does amazing things for the environment, and we’re excited to award this certification to ensure more customers can benefit from the good they do,” said Shariah Experts Co-Founder and Director Dr Farrukh Habib. “Islam forbids wasting resources and destroying the environment. He attaches great importance to environmentally friendly ideas and principles. The modern trends of sustainable environment and green economy are aligned with the teachings of Islam and Sharia. Therefore, projects like Carbon Market Exchange should be welcomed by the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Carbon Market Exchange Ltd has partnered with WEB3 experts to achieve its technology goals and meet international climate targets. The development of the XCO2 and CMX tokens took place on the Ethereum blockchain and the secondary scaling solution Polygon. With the recent merging from the energy-consuming proof-of-work model to the environmentally conscious proof-of-stake model, Ethereum now has a place in the conservation movement. The CMX NFT Certificates can be purchased through the Carbon Market Exchange Marketplace and then traded, held or retired to meet industry needs.
