Frequently Asked Questions

The Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) is a voluntary carbon offsets scheme and is an integral component of the Emissions Reduction Fund. An assessment of the proposed land by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, or a registered environmental consultant, may be required to determine if the project is likely to have a material impact on water availability.

There are two main types of carbon reduction initiatives: sequestration and avoidance. Both involve changing agricultural practices or land use. Sequestration is achieved by increasing the amount of carbon stored in the soil and vegetation. Carbon avoidance involves reducing greenhouse gas emissions from livestock, soil or vegetation.

Carbon-neutral farming uses best practice to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a result of agricultural practices. Often a mix of sequestration and avoidance, it may include carbon farming on the property where it isn’t possible to eliminate emissions entirely.

Carbon farming is good for the world and all its living beings. As well as potential economic benefits, these practices are a big step in helping Australia reduce our share of greenhouse gas emissions and heal the land, as well as protect the biodiversity that supports our way of life.
