ACCU Scheme methods

Changes to method development

As part of the implementation of the Independent Review of Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs), the Australian Government has moved method development function to the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW). Support provided to the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC) has also moved to DCCEEW. Read more about the implementation of the Independent Review of ACCUs on DCCEEW’s website.

Australian businesses, land holders and communities can take part in the Australian Carbon Credit Unit (ACCU) Scheme (formerly known as the Emissions Reduction Fund) by running projects that reduce emissions or store carbon in soils and vegetation.

Methodology determinations (or methods) determine the rules and eligible activities for running an ACCU Scheme project. To register a project and be credited for emissions reductions, your project must follow one of the active methods.
