Guidance for crediting abatement achieved under human induced regeneration and native forest managed regrowth methods
We have published
guidance on our expectations for participants claiming Australian carbon credit units for abatement achieved under these methods.
An advance payment worth up to $5,000 is available through a pilot program for eligible Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) projects to help with upfront costs of soil sampling.
See more information on the advance to support soil method baseline sampling.
There are a number of opportunities for the land sector to participate in the Emissions Reduction Fund by either storing carbon or avoiding emissions from agricultural activities.
Sequestration projects generate abatement by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it as carbon in plants as they grow. Examples of sequestration activities could include:
documentasset:Sequestration decision tree to help you make the right choice.
sequestration and vegetation modules to understand what's involved in these types of projects.
LOOC-C is the Landscape Options and Opportunities for Carbon abatement Calculator (LOOC-C) developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). It allows you to quickly assess what Emissions Reduction Fund might be right for your land and provides you with estimates of what carbon increases are possible based on project size, land condition, and method.
To assess options for an Emissions Reduction Fund project on your land visit LOOC-C, or you can
contact CSIRO for more information on the calculator.
Note that estimates provided through LOOC-C are for illustrative purposes only and may differ from actual project outcomes. Use of LOOC-C does not guarantee that your project will be eligible for registration under the Emissions Reduction Fund - your project will need to satisfy the requirements of the CFI Act to be registered. See
planning a project for more information.
