Biodiverse Reforestation Carbon Offsets – Australia
Biodiverse Reforestation Carbon Offsets remove CO2 from the atmosphere every day. This project is also helping to restore a native ecosystem. It enhances our shared natural capital with habitat restoration and land conservation and brings social and economic benefits.
- Project Type Reforestation
- Location Southwest Australia
- Standard Independently verified
- Estimated Reduction 967,695 tonnes CO2-e over 50 years
20 t+Contributes to climate action
35 t+May be eligible to become a Carbon Neutral Partner
80 t+Helping to preserve Australian wildlife
150 t+Restores delicate ecosystems
This project aims to link small patches of remnant vegetation and nature reserves in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor by planting mixed native tree and shrub species on degraded ex-agricultural land.
Through planting species highly adapted to the region the revegetation project encourages the reintroduction of endangered species and combats desertification in this Global Biodiversity Hotspot.
In addition to capturing carbon, these plantings provide crucial habitat for thousands of species of unique wildlife.
Co-benefits include employment and training opportunities for local people, contribution to local business and ongoing consultation and engagement with Indigenous communities.
Purchasing offsets allows for the continuation of the planting project which is restoring the fragile ecosystem as well as sequestering carbon.

Carbon is sequestered over a number of years by these native mixed species trees and shrubs. To satisfy any claims of carbon offsetting (or climate neutrality) an equivalent number of verified carbon offset credits from a (Climate Active compliant) international project will be ‘paired’ or ‘stapled’ to your order – guaranteeing real carbon capture straight away.
Biodiverse Reforestation Carbon Offsets are not registered under a formal certification framework. Instead, A qualified third party independently verifies the project to ensure that 1 carbon credit = 1 tonne CO2-e.
Cancellation of these Biodiverse Reforestation Carbon Offsets is on Carbon Neutral’s internal registry, guaranteeing each credit cannot be resold.
Please be advised we are unable to provide individual serial numbers for online transactions.
Achieving Climate Active certification is a process we can facilitate, but it’s not achieved by default by purchasing BRCOs.
