Select Carbon

All your carbon farming needs in one place.

We empower Australian farmers and landowners to adopt innovative land management practices that make a difference, both to the environment and to their business bottom line. It’s part of our unwavering commitment to be a part of the solution to climate change and reducing Australia’s net carbon emissions, whilst supporting regional businesses and communities.

Our Story

We specialise in developing and aggregating carbon farming projects throughout Australia.

Founded in 2010, Select Carbon is an innovative environmental services company that
specialises in developing and aggregating carbon farming projects throughout

With a proven track record partnering with landholders, we have experience in   developing, monitoring and reporting on a broad range of carbon sequestration projects across Australia that are currently participating in the Federal Government’s Emissions
Reduction Fund and other carbon offset markets. These projects encompass
millions of hectares Australia wide.

We work with methodologies approved by the Clean Energy Regulator to help
Australian farmers and landowners create Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs)
from land-based carbon projects.


We are committed to the long-term goal of increasing carbon sequestration in
vegetation and soil to reduce Australia’s net carbon emissions, in a way that
aligns business, environmental and social outcomes. We support improvements in
land management, whilst also helping landowners to diversify their income
streams to build more resilient businesses.

In October 2020, Shell Australia acquired 100% of Select Carbon. Learn more about Shell’s investment in nature-based solutions here.
