Distributed ledger technology provider Ripple has joined the Crypto Climate Accord, an initiative whose aim is to decarbonize the cryptocurrency industry. 

The list of members also includes cryptocurrency investing firm CoinShares and Ethereum development studio ConsenSys.   

These companies will work to make sure that all blockchains will be powered exclusively by green energy by 2025. The initiative also aims to get CO2 emissions to zero by 2040.
