Carbon farming projects can support local communities to generate jobs, direct improvements in the environment and build relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. When you buy our Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs), you can invest with purpose. Our carbon credits are different. They have the power to generate change because they have environmental, social and cultural core benefits. That means you’ll be creating a legacy you can be proud of. All of our ACCUs core benefits are monitored by our simple, yet robust verification process, so we can easily share the impacts your investments deliver. We offer two types of carbon credits, as per below.


Community credits are Australian Carbon Credit Units with environmental, social and cultural benefits. Buying these community credits means you’ll:

  1. Support elders to share traditional ecological knowledge with young people.
  2. Protect rock art and sacred sites.
  3. Protect the environment by Indigenous-led land management.
  4. Support meaningful employment that aligns with the interests and values of Traditional Owners.
  5. Contribute to the increased pride and self-esteem of Indigenous people.
