Keeping sustainable landholders on sustainable land

How is CarbonSMARTdifferent?


CarbonSMART®  is different because it offers landholders a low risk, low management, low cost option to enter the booming carbon market. CarbonSMART®  works on a partnership approach with landholders where CarbonSMART®  undertakes the management, accreditation and monitoring on behalf of the landholders. Landholders can get on with growing trees!

The carbon trading market is already climbing rapidly, with some experts estimating the market will be worth $2.4 trillion in five years time. The CarbonSMART®  business model has been designed to ensure that, as the price of carbon rises with demand, those increases are passed onto the landholders. It is expected that CarbonSMART®  will raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help support sustainable Australian farmers and landholders.

Another key difference of CarbonSMART®  is that we support conservation projects on private land. These projects also assist in fighting salinity, erosion, water quality, creates habitat and a wealth of other environmental benefits.

CarbonSMART®  is more than just carbon, it's an investment in a healthy environment!!!
