What is carbon farming?
Carbon Farming is farming in a way that reduces emissions or captures and holds carbon in the landscape, this produces carbon credits which can be traded. Climate Friendly works with farmers and landholders to develop projects that satisfy the requirements of the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF), which was set up in 2014 specifically to purchase credits from carbon farming projects.
Why take part?
The main benefit for famers and landowners is the additional income generated through the sale of carbon credits. In some cases the revenue from carbon farming provides farmers with financial protection against the impacts of drought. In other cases, carbon farming has paid for a range of improvements like fences, machinery, and buildings or the purchase of second properties.
Is my business eligible for carbon farming?
Hundreds of Australian farmers are diversifying their operations, securing additional income and ensuring the sustainability of their operations with carbon farming projects.
There are no up-front costs and land does not need to be locked up.
