27 August 2018

For comment: proposed amendments and guidance

On 23 August 2018, the Department of the Environment and Energy released proposed amendments to the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Rule 2015 relating to native vegetation regeneration projects for public consultation until 5pm (AEST), 13 September 2018. The proposed amendments are supported by documentasset::technical guidance, that has been co-designed between the Clean Energy Regulator and industry partners, also open for comment until 5pm (AEST), 28 September 2018.

During the consultation period, applications for project registration and Australian carbon credit units will continue to be assessed in accordance with the method requirements, the documentasset::draft operational policy, and documentasset::interim posture.

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.

Vegetation ​projects generate abatement by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it as carbon in plants as they grow. Examples of vegetation activities could include:

  • reforestation
  • revegetation, or​
  • protecting native forest or vegetation that is at imminent risk of clearing.

On 1 July 2015, seven vegetation and sequestration methods developed under the Carbon Farming Initiative were revoked. These methods are closed for new entry. Projects already registered under a revoked method may continue to use that method.

Use the documentasset:Sequestration decision ​tree​ ​to help you make the right choice. Please note, the sequestration decision tree does not reflect all current vegetation methods.
