Thousands of farmers ,agricultural producers, foresters and traditional custodians across Australia are taking advantage of strategic new opportunities to regenerate their land and improve their properties – giving them greater stability and income for the long-term and helping them stay on the land that they love. Carbon farming activities also deliver other important benefits to the land itself, creating a win-win situation for carbon farmers – healthier land, increased production and a new source of income to invest in further improvements.
Carbon farmers either remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it in their land, or prevent greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere, through the use of approved carbon farming methods as set out by the federal government, or other certification standards.

Carbon farmers receive one Australian Carbon Credit Unit (known as an ACCU) for each metric tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent that their project either avoids emitting or stores in the landscape. These carbon credits can be sold or traded to bring in a regular income.
Climate Friendly acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land and waters on which we live and work, and pays our respects to Elders past, present and future for they carry the cultural wisdom, the stories, the traditions and dreaming. With a commitment to reconciliation, we acknowledge the ongoing impact of past policies and practices, and commit our endeavours to creating a just society and sector that celebrates the ongoing resilience and self-determination of our first peoples and communities.
