REDD+ Result Units™
What is a REDD+ Result Unit™ (RRU) forest carbon credit?
An RRU forest carbon credit is the first product for sale to businesses created by REDD+, a platform created by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNCCC). Put most simply, REDD+ enables developing countries to receive payment in exchange for protecting their forests. Each RRU purchased represents the removal of one tonne of CO2 from the atmosphere and saves two rainforests trees.
What makes RRUs different from other credits?
RRUs are the only carbon credits certified by the United Nations as an internationally transferred mitigation outcome under the Paris Accord.
Unlike many project-based credits, each RRU represents a verified, overall net reduction in a country’s total forest carbon emissions.
Stopping the destruction of tropical rainforests represents our greatest opportunity to have a vital impact on reducing carbon emissions today, rather than waiting for construction to be completed, technology to be developed, or reforestation projects to grow.
Deforestation and forest degradation are responsible for more carbon emissions than the entire global transportation industry. Achieving the goals of the Paris Accord will be impossible without protection of tropical rainforests as an indispensable carbon sink.
