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.
