Method consultations and development tracker

29 June 2022

We work with the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC) to consult on all new and varied Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) methods. This process includes public consultation to ensure they are fit for purpose and meet the offsets integrity standards in the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011. This assists the ERAC in forming their advice to the Minister.

Method development tracker

We are committed to transparency and accountability. The method development tracker charts progress for each of the priority methods, providing you with visibility of the method development process. Below is the status of our methods under development. Click on a method to learn more about it.
