An Overview

The Coalition for Rainforest Nations’ mission is to unite the world in tackling the climate emergency

After 15 years of relentless work to stop deforestation, the Coalition and its member countries are fulfilling their promise to bring the largest, most cost-effective climate solution to the world:

Emissions reductions from the planet’s tropical rainforests at a multi-gigaton level.

With the help of REDD+ Paris Agreement-compliant carbon credits, developed country governments, corporations, and citizens can now achieve ambitious carbon neutral goals at a scale unimaginable until recently. And in the next few years, our countries will bring a multi-gigaton pipeline of carbon reductions online. That is the reduction equivalent of the amount of carbon that Germany emits every year. More importantly, the scale of the emission reductions gives the world a real chance to tackle the climate emergency by aligning to a 1.5°C temperature pathway by 2030.

“The REDD.plus online trading platform will be underpinned by national GHG inventories and independent auditing. It will allow anyone to become truly carbon neutral with a click.”

How Carbon Reductions from Tropical Rainforests can be Purchased

The REDD.plus platform offers countries and corporations the ability to purchase Paris Agreement-compliant carbon credits from the entire inventory of a country’s national rainforests and achieve carbon neutral or reduction goals.

Under the UN Climate Convention, the REDD+ mechanism helps developing countries earn REDD+ results from reducing deforestation and degradation, conserving rainforests, or reforesting degraded areas on a national scale.

The UNFCCC has set a high bar under the REDD+ mechanism, and are the only approvers of REDD+ results, which are measured in tons of CO2e. The REDD+ Mechanism tracks the carbon reduction results from countries, which are then converted into “REDD+ Result Units” or RRU carbon credits.

Countries can generate RRU credits by committing to sustainable actions with results verified by UNFCCC. The platform then tracks each carbon credit, avoids double counting, and records tracking between international registries.t all begins with an idea.

Support our countries with national efforts to stop deforestation.

Buy Forest Carbon Credits that Count!

Purchase our countries’ forest carbon credits or REDD+ Results Units (RRUs). Each carbon credit is only issued after successful efforts to reduce deforestation have resulted in carbon reductions.
The credits are verified by the UNFCCC, registered under the Paris Agreement, and seamlessly integrated into global carbon accounting.
All credits are retired upon sale with at least 90% of the cost paid going back into the country to support local communities for conservation efforts.
