REDD+ Results are measured in metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent or greenhouse gas emissions reductions. They are generated at national level from activities to preserve and protect forests.  The REDD+ mechanism is used to measure, report and verify these emissions reductions. After listing on the REDD+ Info Hub, the platform works with its registry partner – IHS Markit to serialize the REDD+ Results, creating a REDD+ Results Unit (RRU). These units are then listed on and made available for purchase.  Now individuals and businesses can purchase them to conserve rainforests and reduce their carbon footprint.
