Changes to the Carbon Farming Initiative
The legislative rules governing the Carbon Farming Initiative have changed. The Carbon Farming Initiative has been integrated with the Emissions Reduction Fund from 12 December 2014.
Content on this website will be progressively updated to reflect these changes. More information can be found on the Emissions Reduction Fund and other schemes page.
The Carbon Farming Initiative enables individuals and entities to be issued Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) through projects that store carbon or reduce greenhouse gas emissions on the land.
ACCUs issued under the Carbon Farming Initiative can be sold to people and businesses wishing to offset liability under the carbon pricing mechanism until 2 February 2015. ACCUs may continue to be sold after that date to people and businesses wishing to offset their emissions voluntarily.
