Types of carbon farming methods
Carbon farmers either remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it in their land, or prevent greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere, through the use of approved carbon farming methodologies (known as ‘methods’ as set out by the Australian government).
Climate Friendly works closely with government, technical experts and academic researchers to develop new methods, increasing the opportunities for farmers, businesses and traditional custodians to get involved in mitigating climate damage and keep their land in balance in return for regular income.
