The NGO stated that "ICAO’s decision connects limits on aviation carbon pollution with investments in tropical forest protection and restoration, and is a win for nature, countries, companies and communities". This is "the first time that REDD+ credits have been approved for use within a global compliance carbon market system" Environmental Defense Fund's Chief Economist Ruben Lubowski added.
