On 1 November 2018, the Federal Court handed down its decision in the case of Country Carbon Pty Ltd v Clean Energy Regulator.
The Federal Court confirmed that consents from eligible interest holders are required for area-based emissions avoidance projects, such as savanna burning projects, and sequestration projects. These requirements apply to existing projects, and all new registered area-based projects. The decision has not been appealed and the time for appeal is now closed.
We will continue to implement the scheme in accordance with the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011 and the Court’s decision.
