A DTUcoin is a complementary currency issued by ZerO2Nature that is based on the mitigation/removal of measured negative human impact from nature. DTU stands for Diseconomy Traded Unit. DTUcoins can be traded or used as a green (eco) currency for payment at ZerO2Nature approved merchants. Moreover, a DTUcoin is a multi-faceted instrument for businesses that require a strong communication tool that effectively promotes adopted social/environmental actions.

DTUcoins are classified and generated according to 6 types of ZerO2Nature certified projects: M-DTU (originating from PREMIN projects), B-DTU (originating from PREBIO projects), F-DTU (originating from PREFOR projects), C-DTU (originating from PRECARB projects), H-DTU (originating from PREHYDRO projects) and N-DTU (originating from PRONER projects).


ZerO2Nature is the standard that supports the origination and quality of generated DTUcoins. All projects undergo a rigorous certification procedure before being awarded DTUs. Annual verifications and spot checks are conducted to guarantee that projects absolutely conform to the project design specifications. Please visit ZerO2Nature.com for more information.
