Guide for responsible purchase of REDD+ credits in Brazil

The objective of this guide prepared by NBS Brazil Alliance is to support corporate strategies for offsetting emissions that encourage the reduction of deforestation and the promotion of a new economy of the standing forest. REDD - Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation - is an official mechanism recognized by the UN as an important instrument to achieve global targets for reducing GHG emissions. Considering the role of conserving forest carbon stocks, sustainable forest management and increasing forest carbon stocks, the acronym "gets" the + sign, hence REDD+.

With the growth of both corporate emission reduction targets and the voluntary carbon market, it becomes important to define key points for a responsible purchase of this type of carbon credits. These key points were organized and presented in the report, in the form of guiding questions on the following subjects of the REDD+ project under analysis:

  1. Carbon management in your company

  2. Responsible entity

  3. Project registration platform

  4. Additional impacts and certifications

  5. Forest conservation strategies

  6. Technical aspects

  7. Pricing

  8. Elements of communication
