Our Mission

Changing the way documents are sent digitally.

We understand the crucial role innovative companies need to play in helping the UK reach its decarbonisation targets of net zero by 2050 and are committed to do our part today. That is why at docStribute® we’re committed to having NetZero CO2E by 2030. docStribute® not only eliminates the need for costly paper documents, but it also utilises the efficiency and sustainability of Hedera Hashgraph.


Saving Carbon

At docStribute® we understand the crucial role innovative companies need to play in helping the UK reach its decarbonisation targets of net zero by 2050 and are committed to do our part today. That is why at docStribute® we’re committed to having NetZero CO2E by 2030. docStribute® not only eliminates the need for costly paper documents, but it also utilises the efficiency and sustainability of Hedera Hashgraph. 

When we built docStribute® there was no point replacing paper with an energy sapping blockchain, that’s one of the reasons we chose to building Hedera. The efficiency of hashgraph consensus enables Hedera to be the most sustainable public network, based on average energy consumed per transaction (0.000003 kWh), according to a recent study conducted by University College London.

In addition, Hedera has committed to being a carbon-negative public network through the purchase of quarterly carbon credits to offset the small amount of emissions from all public-facing infrastructure.
