AbCF Builds Wealth for First Nations Australians

Tackling climate change with traditional means, Aboriginal Carbon Foundation builds wealth for First Nations Australians. Article as posted on the National Indigenous Times website, 7 September 2022.

Extract from article: “In 2010, Rowan Foley became the founding chief executive officer of the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation after identifying a future in carbon farming and it’s benefits for First Nations peoples. … Fast forward 12 years and the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation is an industry leader in creating community prosperity for Indigenous people through carbon farming and the ethical trade of carbon credits.

The foundation offers a suite of services, some the first of their kind, that have positive environmental, social and cultural outcomes for First Nations people, all whilst reducing the carbon footprint of investors. In addition to offering Australia’s only nationally accredited training course on carbon farming and providing verification services of environmental, social and cultural core benefits, the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation have also developed a world first trading platform.”

Second Extract: “Mr Foley will be speaking to investors about services offered by the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation at this month’s Social Enterprise World Forum. ‘We want serious investors to come on board and support us,’ Mr Foley said. ‘We’ve got catalyst markets, we’ve got a trading platform, we’ve got a few commodities, commodities which will deal with serious bushfires in Australia. We’re here to create jobs on Country, we’re here to address the bushfires and we’re here to address climate change.’ Mr Foley said. The Aboriginal Carbon Foundation will be offsetting the Social Enterprise World Forum, making it a carbon neutral event. The two day conference will be held at Brisbane’s Convention & Exhibition Centre from September 28 to 29.”
