Guidance for crediting abatement achieved under human induced regeneration and native forest managed regrowth methods
We have published
guidance on our expectations for participants claiming Australian carbon credit units for abatement achieved under these methods.
Vegetation projects generate abatement by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it as carbon in plants as they grow. Examples of vegetation activities could include:
documentasset:Sequestration decision tree to help you make the right choice. Please note, the sequestration decision tree does not reflect all current vegetation methods.
If you are interested in planting methods read
Documentasset: Requirements for all planting projects
All vegetation methods have permanence obligations and you should familiarise yourself with these obligations if considering running a vegetation project.
The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources released an update to FullCAM for public use from 1 September 2020. See
A guide to the 2020 FullCAM – transition arrangements for more information.
On 1 July 2015, seven vegetation and sequestration methods developed under the Carbon Farming Initiative were revoked. These methods are closed for new entry. Projects already registered under a revoked method may continue to use that method.
