The Aboriginal Carbon Foundation will help your business build trusting relationships, negotiate ethical agreements and support you to achieve your corporate social responsibilities in a competitive business environment.
Many great Australians have built enduring relationships with Aboriginal First Nations. Buying carbon credits from Traditional Owners that provide a genuine benefit to your business as well as Aboriginal people on the ground is a great idea, but we know, can be difficult to achieve.
The Aboriginal Carbon Foundation creates linkages and connects communities, with long term social, economic, cultural and environmental outcomes.
Partnering with the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation is a cost-effective way to invest in rural farming economies, support Indigenous communities, and tackle climate change.Read More

“If you want to do something about climate change and help our mob, then buy our carbon credits.”
Stafford Yam - Traditional Owner, Aboriginal Ranger, Carbon Farmer
Traditional Owners say managing country is more important than the carbon credits. In addition to the carbon abatement, these projects deliver ‘core benefits’ to country and community. This includes employment, positive health outcomes, sense of pride, creating a legacy of inter-generational wealth outcomes and more.
A recent example, is the Kowanyama Savanna Burning Project, which is supported by the National Australia Bank (NAB).
Stafford Yam is a Kunjen man who has been working on the Kowanyama Savannah Burning Project in Far North Queensland for three years. Before getting involved in carbon farming, Stafford’s career options, like many others, were limited, but now he’s fulfilling his dream of working on country while remaining with his community. So far, this project has driven more than $1,000,000 to the Kowanyama Aboriginal Shire Council, which means the lives of the wider community continue to improve every day.
We’d like to say a big thank you to NAB who have committed to buying the carbon credits created by the Kowanyama Savannah Burning Project until 2021. Thank you NAB!
