Keeping sustainable landholders on sustainable land

What is carbon trading?


Carbon trading involves the creation and transfer of carbon rights from one party to another. The trade requires the measurement, allocation and reporting of these carbon rights or "carbon credits" (to an agreed standard). The GGAS allows accredited abatement certificate providers to create NGACs that can be traded or sold to other parties who need additional credits to meet their emissions target.

CarbonSMART®  will create carbon credits through privately-owned vegetation that will be sold to organisations with either an obligation or a commitment to offsetting their greenhouse gas emissions.
