Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011 (CFI Act) requires the Clean Energy Regulator to publish and maintain details of projects registered under the Emissions Reduction Fund. (See section 167 of the CFI Act). For a project to be registered it must meet all eligibility criteria (Section 27 of the CFI Act) and involve activities that achieve emissions reductions consistent with an approved method.
The register includes information on all projects including:
Where a project has been awarded a contract to sell credits to the Emissions Reduction Fund, additional information will also be included on the Register and contract information.
The CFI Act includes comprehensive information about what will be included on the Emissions Reduction Fund register.
The Emissions Reduction Fund project map is an interactive map of Australia which provides an 'at a glance' view of the volume, location and type of projects happening across the country.
The map has a range of filter options to customise how the data is displayed, including by method, state or territory, contracted or non-contracted projects, and by postcode.
