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.
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 Australia.
With a proven track record partnering with landholders, we have developed over 70 carbon sequestration projects that are currently participating in the Federal Government’s Emissions Reduction Fund and other carbon offset markets. These projects encompass over 9 million 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. We support improvements in land management, whilst also helping landowners to diversify their income streams to build a more resilient business.
