RBI’s realized a 17,1 MtCO2 emission reduction
Since the formal start of the REDD+ Business Initiative in 2013, its members collectively purchased CO2-credits from REDD+ projects to the equivalent of 17,1 MtCO2. An increase of nearly 1 MtCO2 since 2021.
Of this amount, 2,8 MtCO2 came from the RBI’s Flagship project Tambopata-Bahuaja Biodiversity Reserve in Peru. With these purchases, our members helped not only to preserve large areas of pristine tropical forests, but also supported over 400 jobs, including the improvement of agricultural practices, opening trade channels and acquiring land rights.
