To stop climate change global deforestation must be reversed

Under the UN Climate Convention, the REDD+ mechanism helps developing countries earn REDD+ results if they reduce deforestation and degradation, conserve rainforests or reforest degraded areas on a national scale.

The UNFCCC has set a high bar under the REDD+ mechanism and approves REDD+ results that are measured in tons of CO2e. is the first platform to provide a central registry and exchange for REDD+ results and credits – it enables lifecycle tracking and reporting of REDD+ results, including emissions reductions and removals approved under the Paris Agreement.

Contact us to learn more about how you can acquire REDD+ credits.
