The Green Assets Wallet (GAW) is a blockchain based technology developed to help scale the green debt market. The technology is the result of a co-creative process between leading capital market actors, technology innovators and green finance experts under the lead of Stockholm Green Digital Finance.

During 2018, the consortium developed the first version of the technology (Minimum Viable Product) to be found at www.greenassetswallet.org. Going forward, May – December 2019, we are taking the technology to full market scalability.

The Green Assets Wallet has gained broad international recognition. Collaborating in the Green Assets Wallet project is an opportunity to work with a highly committed and uniquely composed team, be part of an effort that innovates for the good of society, and gain high international visibility.

About the technology

The Green Assets Wallet technology offers three applications for investors in green debt, issuers of green debt, and validators of green deliverables. Further, it offers the following three main features; validation of green deliverables, impact reporting of green impact and the inherent transparency and trust of the blockchain platform. The blockchain platform is delivered by ChromaWay who will provide the Application Development Partner with the guidance and support to build the GAW Application. This includes training in GraphQL and RELL. Because of the work during 2018, the technology specifications for the GAW Application development work in 2019 are very precise and clear. For more information, visit www.greenassetswallet.org or GitHub.

About the project owner

Stockholm Green Digital Finance is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate green finance through fintech solutions. Scaling capital flows towards sustainable projects and companies are a prerequisite to successfully deliver on the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. At Stockholm Green Digital Finance, we identify the barriers in the financial system that hinders capital market actors from delivering on their full potential with the aim of enabling the finance sector to leverage high impact investments. www.stockholmgreenfin.tech

About the financier

The project is funded and co-developed by the Emerging Markets Dialogue on Finance (EMDF), which is a project of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The project is not-for-profit and the result serves the common good.

Procurement process

We approximate that over our initial 7 month development period (Mid-May – Mid-December), the project will require:

  • 1 full-time Node.js/browser developer with a focus on UI

  • 1 half-time equivalent senior Node.js developer with experience of systems integration

The developers will work closely with Stockholm Green Digital Finance and with ChromaWay (and receive free training in GraphQL and RELL). We have a strong preference for appointing the developers over the entire project to avoid re-training.

We want the Application Development Partner to start working with us on 1st May. We will compare three actors. Please send applications and questions to gaw@stockholmgreenfin.tech. We will conduct our assessment through interviews, sample work and references.
