The Clean Energy Regulator administers the Carbon Farming Initiative which is a legislated offsets scheme that allows farmers and land managers to earn Australian carbon credit units by storing carbon or reducing greenhouse gas emissions on the land. These Australian carbon credit units can then be sold to people and businesses wishing to offset their emissions.
