A number of carbon farming activities are currently funded under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF). Eligible activities having the potential to earn Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) for emissions reductions. One ACCU is earned for each tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2-e) stored or avoided by a project. ACCUs can be sold to generate income, either to the government through a carbon abatement contract, or in the secondary market.
Carbon farming can provide landholders with a source of income, help the environment and potentially make their property more resilient to climate change.
There are a number of types of carbon farming available in Australia. Carbon Landscapes specialises those related to vegetation management. Vegetation projects generate abatement by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it as carbon in plants as they grow. Examples of vegetation activities could include:
- revegetation, or
- protecting native forest or vegetation that is at imminent risk of clearing.
All of our projects ensure current best management practices are adhered to including seed supply, state compliant revegetation guidelines, appropriate site preparation and strategic planning.
