Opportunities for the land sector

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.

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:

  • reforestation
  • revegetation
  • restoring rangelands
  • protecting native forest or vegetation that is at imminent risk of clearing

Unsure about which sequestration methodology is right for your situation?

Use the documentasset:Sequestration decision tree 2016​ to help you make the right choice.

View our sequestration and vegetation modules to understand what's involved in these types of projects.
