Provenance as a Platform

Blockchain solutions for supply chain management


Our mission

Global supply chains are complex and opaque, which creates inefficiencies and allows bad actors to thrive. Using blockchain and smart contracts we aim to foster transparency,  enhance security, and increase efficiency across global supply chains

Foster transparency

Guarantee provenance of assets at every step of the supply chain, from point of origin to final purchase


Enhance security

Prevent fake or synthetic products being injected into supply chains, and eliminate illegal practices and goods being masked from end users.

Increase efficiency

Streamline contracts, automate payments and settlements to eliminate excessive paperwork and delayed payments to raw material suppliers.


CarbonChain is an agnostic platform for guaranteeing asset provenance in global supply chains. Utilising smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain, we are able to track assets as they move from point of origin to the end customer.


Ethereum-based decentralised solution guarantees immutability of transactions on the blockchain.


Smart contracts

Smart contracts ensure provenance in supply chains while automating processes.


Cryptographic security keeps sensitive data away from the public blockchain while ensuring the immutability of transactions.

Use Cases

The CarbonChain platform has been built from the ground up to be highly scalable across multiple products and industries with opaque & easily manipulated supply chains.
