AbCF acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work and live and pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging and celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of all Communities.

We catalyse life-changing, community prosperity, through carbon farming, cultural fire, and strength-based community development. Our aim is to build wealth for Traditional Owners, implementing carbon projects that demonstrate environmental, social and cultural core benefits, through the ethical trade of carbon credits.

We foster relationships between Aboriginal carbon farmers and corporate buyers. We connect Aboriginal communities with diverse opportunities, otherwise unavailable to them through a myriad of historical issues and government bureaucracy.

We pride ourselves on putting people and culture first, creating a unique way of working with and alongside mob for the creation of a better country for our First Nations people, and a better world for all First Nations peoples.

We believe in the importance of embedding a First Nations voice as we move forward towards a sustainable and inclusive future. We provide that voice and opportunity and are focussed on ensuring First Nations Peoples are active partners and beneficiaries in carbon projects.

Let’s work together to strengthen the bonds of collaboration and respect and look at the opportunities available.
