Providing up to date information on Deforestation, REDD+ and the Carbon Market
RBI has a large network in the world of businesses, science and NGOs, which gives us direct access to a wealth of information on the carbon market and on international REDD+ developments. We share the collected information and knowledge online and in our members meetings, where we discuss new developments, experiences and challenges. The secretariat is easily accessible for any additional information you might need.
Providing guidance on incorporating REDD+ in your business strategy
Incorporating carbon credits into your business strategy is pioneers work, and RBI is here to offer you step by step support in how to go about this.
The first step is to measure the impact of your company or product, followed by reducing the impact wherever possible and as a final step offsetting the unavoidable emissions. As the voluntary carbon market is still fragmented and in an early phase of maturity, most companies need guidance on how to participate in a safe and reliable way.
Therefore RBI is helping members by giving them:
- access to reliable producers of REDD+ credits;
- the possibility to purchase credits (or sustainable commodities) from RBIs flagship project where potential risks around REDD+ are adequately managed.
Calculate your carbon footprint through the REDD+ Business Initiative
You can use the free online carbon calculator, developed by Ecosphere+, to measure your carbon footprint. This calculation is a first step towards incorporating REDD+ into your business strategy.
