The Aboriginal Carbon Foundation supports carbon farming projects, led by Indigenous rangers. It connects Aboriginal communities who supply carbon credits, with organisations seeking to offset their carbon pollution and provides training for Indigenous rangers.

We were established as a not-for-profit entity in 2010 and have grown and expanded deliverables, to meet demand, innovation, industry, community developments and best practice. The nearly 100% Indigenous staff are passionate about working to build viable economies on Aboriginal lands. We are supported by a range of associates and project partners, who are equally committed to supporting Indigenous people.

The AbCF operates on the cutting edge of ideas and community-based solutions. Our offices are located around Australia.


AbCF has a strong culture of innovation and collaboration. We take risks and invest in the development of carbon products and services that benefit Indigenous people and address climate change.
