–MRV Data Now Integrated in Laconic’s SADAR™ Natural Capital Monetization Platform–

CHICAGO and SINGAPORE, April 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Laconic Infrastructure Partners Inc. (Laconic), announced today a data integration partnership with Adatos, a leading Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) provider. Through the partnership, Laconic customers can now natively access independent validations and assessments of nature-based carbon reduction & removal activities inside the SADAR™ Natural Capital Monetization platform.

Accurate MRV data is required to establish both the quantum and permanence of the carbon sequestration associated with particular mitigation activities.  The lack of a verifiable digital chain of custody for MRV data in the past has hampered scaling efforts in the global carbon markets.  By integrating Adatos’ independent MRV capabilities directly into the SADAR™ NCM platform, Laconic provides its customers with the world’s first fully digital chain of custody for MRV data. This facilitates the rapid, accurate, and third-party auditable due diligence activities required to support large-scale transaction flows.

This partnership combines Laconic’s LUEI universal carbon taxonomy and LUCID carbon-unit identifier with Adatos’ MRV data – which is globally available for all forests, mangroves, peatlands, and large-scale monoculture. This unique capability directly and permanently associates critical carbon inventory information directly with a defined area of land, creating value-additive metadata that increases the economic value and fungibility of any financial instrument linked to such information.

“We are pleased to bring our capabilities to Laconic’s customers in an easy to use and accessible format,” said Jonathan Paul, Co-founder and CEO, Adatos. “The integrated solution makes understanding the current state of carbon inventory in a particular Area of Interest (AOI) much simpler.”

“Laconic, as the global leader in carbon finance, is always searching for unique partnerships that enhance the monetization potential of our customers’ carbon market activities. Integrating Adatos’ state-of-the-art AI/ML carbon inventory modeling into SADAR™ provides Laconic’s customers with an innovative new capability to independently verify and validate carbon inventories, not only at-will, but also in full compliance with the data transparency, chain-of-custody, and auditability requirements promulgated by capital market regulators,” said Andrew Gilmour, Co-Founder and CEO, Laconic.

Designed for the carbon market ecosystem, SADAR Natural Capital Monetization is the world’s trusted carbon data management and interchange platform. SADAR NCM subscribers are provided access to the right information at the right time, meeting the liquidity and compliance requirements for trading at scale in global financial markets.
