The Aboriginal Carbon Foundation are helping to build the Aboriginal carbon sector. We specialise in carbon projects, advice and services, to help grow this sector across Australia and internationally.
We support carbon farming projects led by Indigenous rangers and connect communities with ACCU buyers, for mutual benefit. We can provide project and policy advice, as well as accredited Carbon Farming Training.
Our services are tailored to meet the needs of all parties in this industry, nationally and internationally. We look forward to working with you.
Aboriginal people involved in and effected by carbon projects in Australia, and other respective countries, must lead the process of development and prioritisation of project outcomes.
This framework is unique, in that it creates the opportunity for Indigenous people to become the experts in the verification of environmental, social and cultural values.Read More
