On 8 May 2019, the Clean Energy Regulator released documentasset::Guidelines on stratification, evidence and records for projects under the human-induced regeneration and native forest from managed regrowth methods. The guidelines support the requirements in the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Amendment Rule (No.2) 2018, the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Amendment Rule (No.1) 2019, and key method eligibility requirements. The Clean Energy Regulator consulted with industry and technical experts to develop these guidelines.
The guideline supersedes the documentasset::interim posture and documentasset::draft operational policy used to assess crediting abatement for human-induced regeneration and native forest from managed regrowth methods from November 2017 to May 2019.
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:
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.
documentasset:Sequestration decision tree to help you make the right choice. Please note, the sequestration decision tree does not reflect all current vegetation methods.
