Carbon Farming Initiative

The Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) allows farmers and other land managers to earn carbon credits by storing carbon or reducing greenhouse gas emissions on the land. These credits, known as Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs), can be sold to people and businesses wishing to offset their emissions.

The CFI also helps rural communities and the environment supporting sustainable farming by creating incentives for landscape rehabilitation.

A CFI hand book is available on the internet and is a good place to start for land managers interested in getting involved.
Download PDF version of the Handbook.

Hard copies of the CFI Handbook are available from the Project Platypus office.

The ‘Project Platypus Paddock Guide’ has some usefull information for Land managers. It helps to get an understanding of how and where emissions are generated. It covers such topics as emissions avoidance, revegetation and agroforestry, measuring carbon and greenhouse gasses and carbon in agriculture.
