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.
