The Carbon Farming Initiative, which forms part of the government’s Clean Energy Future package, provides income-producing opportunities for the land sector. Projects in the forestry, agricultural and landfill sectors have the ability to generate carbon credits, which can then be sold to entities which have a carbon price liability.
This paper provides an overview of those opportunities and will explain:
the types of activities that can participate
the types of credits that can be generated
the types of markets into which the credits can be sold.
The paper also covers the taxation implications arising out of project activity.
