Climate Friendly’s vision is for a productive, sustainable land sector that contributes to a zero net emission Australia by 2050. Our purpose is to reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions by 20 million tonnes by 2020, scaling up to 100 million tonnes by 2025.
We do this by supporting rural, regional and remote Australians including farmers, foresters and traditional custodians to reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions and regenerate the landscape through carbon farming.
We’re ambitious. But we’ve already achieved so much – and we’re determined to help Australia tap into its potential to tackle the climate challenge through the land sector.
As a ‘profit for purpose’ company, we measure our success by more than just our bottom line. Instead, we’re motivated by freedom and flexibility for carbon farmers, sustainability for the land, and a bright future for the next generation.
As a foundation signatory of the Australian Carbon Industry Code of Conduct and an Australian Financial Services licensee, we have committed to developing and conducting our business in line with industry best practice, and interacting with our carbon farmers and partners in a professional and ethical manner.
Climate Friendly is committed to actively supporting Australian regional communities and advancing the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander reconciliation process through a partnership approach.
With more than 100 projects nationwide, we’ve already achieved fantastic results – we’ve seen huge improvements in land health and regeneration, and over seven million tonnes of carbon saved from being emitted into the atmosphere since 2015.
Climate Friendly manages around one fifth of all projects registered under the national Carbon Farming Initiative, and our projects currently span an area the size of Italy. Every audited project we’ve undertaken has successfully passed independent review.
Our projects have already generated over $85 million in carbon credits for our partners, based on average market prices, and will generate $500 million in revenue for partners over 10 years.
