Dear Liverpool City Council,
On 19 July 2018 it was reported on the Liverpool Express website that:
"The city council has signed an agreement with The Poseidon Foundation (“Poseidon”) Poseidon to integrate its ground-breaking blockchain-powered platform into its day to day operations... Poseidon will be moving its operations to the city in order to play a key role in Liverpool’s new climate positive strategy, which will be trialled over the next 12 months."
From the descriptions available, the proposal appears to replicate the Carbon Card project that was run by Liverpool City Council for four years from 2010 with a budget of £2million, from which I assume lessons were learned and incorporated into this thing.
I have scoured everywhere on the council documents and meetings webpages and cannot find a single trace of this agreement, what it is, or what it is about.
Accordingly, could you please either direct me to a place on the Council website where the contents of the agreement signed with Poseidon is recorded, or send me a copy of it by email.
Dear Mr Todd
Please see attached response to your FOI Request as submitted to Liverpool

Dear Information Requests,
Thank you for this complete response.
The only action on part of the Council which I can find in this MoU is in Annex A Project Overview:
"2. The Authority to review its business activities and that of its companies as to how it can incorporate a sustainable carbon positive platform into its businesses working with Poseidon for the purposes of the Project."
Unfortunately there's no schedule for this action, while the press release stated that it would be " trialled over the next 12 months".
I'll try to remember to check back in January (at the 6 month point) to see how this review has got on.
