Impact at the Yarra Yarra

We’ve developed Australia’s largest biodiverse reforestation carbon sink on degraded landscapes in Southwest Australia.

 

The Corridor project supports Gold Standard-certified carbon offset credits (VERs and PERs) and independently certified Biodiverse Reforestation Carbon Offsets.

 

The project contributes socio-economic co-benefits and aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Carbon Neutral can help you support carbon offset projects that deliver on the SDGs. Our Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor project and the international offset projects we are licensed to sell contribute to different combinations of the 17 Goals.

 

We can help you balance your carbon footprint by supporting the projects that fits your business’ strategy and scope, such as focusing on locations or causes most relevant to them.

FAQS

Which countries does Carbon Neutral work in?

We work with organisations from around the globe to offset their emissions; climate does not heed country boundaries.  As well as generating carbon offsets for our own projects in Australia, we source international offsets from a variety of countries, both advanced and developing nations.

Is my purchase tax deductible?

The purchase of trees or carbon offsets may be a tax deductible business expense but organisations will need to seek their own independent tax advice.

What is the voluntary market, and what is the compliance market?

Voluntary Markets allow organisations to access carbon offsets that have been issued under various voluntary standards, enabling them to reduce their overall carbon footprints, whether for business (marketing), moral or philanthropic reasons or in anticipation of regulations being introduced. The voluntary market is more flexible than the compliance market but the standards held are often more rigorous than compliance standards.

The Compliance (or Regulatory) Markets operate where relevant legislation requires organisations to measure and report their carbon emissions and, if necessary to balance their legislated carbon allowance, acquire carbon offsets that have been issued in accordance with strict regulatory requirements.

What are accredited / unaccredited offsets?

Accredited carbon offset projects are assessed, verified and certified under strictly regulated and controlled global standards that comply with the Kyoto Protocol Mechanism. Projects must comply with strict standards, they must undergo independent verification by accredited third parties and are subject to regular and ongoing review and auditing mechanisms. Accredited offsets can be used in both the Compliance and the Voluntary Markets.

Unaccredited offsets do not need to comply with any standards; the project developer can apply its own guidelines or protocols, and projects do not have to undergo the same rigorous mechanisms as accredited offsets. Unaccredited offsets can only be used in the Voluntary market.

What certification standards does Carbon Neutral use?

Carbon Neutral is licensed to generate and trade in Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) that are issued under the Australian government’s regulatory framework. We also trade in Certified Emission Reduction (CER) units issued under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). These carbon offsets can be used in both the compliance and voluntary markets.

Our reforestation project is certified under the Gold Standard Foundation Land Use and Forestry certification methodology (we are the only carbon project developer in Australia to have achieved this accreditation). The carbon offset credits that are generated are only issued after rigourous independent audits; the resulting Gold Standard Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) can be traded on the international market vis Gold Standard’s independent register.

Carbon Neutral sources other certified offsets for clients such as Verra VCS and United Nations’ CDM CERs. Carbon Neutral is also licensed to sell ACCUs.

We also sell Biodiverse Reforestation Carbon Offsets (BRCOs) from our reforestation projects. These are generated in accordance with Carbon Neutral’s own internal methodology but are not accredited by a recognised accrediting body. They are, however, assessed and verified by independent third party auditors.
