As a coalition of frontrunners we show other companies and governments (both national and EU) how the private sector can contribute to reducing tropical deforestation at scale via REDD+.

Since 2013 RBIs members have purchased a total of 16,1 million tons of CO2 from REDD+ projects.

With biodiversity conservation and the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals as important co-benefits. The companies use their purchases for the compensation of their unavoidable emissions on top of their efforts for internal emission reduction, not instead of it.
