Bitfury partners with UNDP to increase woodland area in Kazakhstan

Bitcoin mining giant Bitfury, in cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), will sign an agreement in late January to build a woodland in the Pavlodar region of Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan currently has 29 million hectares of forest. However, most of the land is threatened by illegal logging, forest fires and land use changes. Kazakhstan must reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 15% over the next ten years in order to meet its 2016 commitments under the Paris Agreement.
