Background

At COP25 in Madrid, The Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN) announced the launch of the REDD.plus Platform (www.redd.plus), with the goal of rallying the world to finance the end of deforestation. It provides the only Paris-Agreement-qualified “tradeable destination” for REDD+ credits earned by developing countries for preservation of their rainforests.

The REDD.plus Registry, to be operated by IHS Markit, will track issuance, ownership, transfer and retirement of REDD+ credits compliant with the Paris Agreement. REDD+ Results Units (RRUs) will be available on CBL Markets and the REDD.plus Platform will integrate with other funds and exchanges. The fund will be underpinned by national GHG inventories and an online trading platform that allows anyone to become truly carbon neutral with a click.” The REDD.plus Platform (www.redd.plus) now provides the only Paris Agreement qualified “tradeable destination” for REDD+ credits earned by developing countries from the preservation of their rainforests.

Who we are

The Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN) helps tropical governments, communities, and peoples responsibly manage their rainforests. Healthy rainforests protect against a changing climate, generate needed biodiversity, and provide safe habitats. Launched by Coalition members in 2005, the United Nation’s REDD+ Mechanism, designed to incentivize conservation and contribute to the battle against climate change, now includes approximately 90% of the world’s remaining rainforests.
