What We Do
Northwest Carbon identifies where market opportunities exist to improve rangeland condition, determines the current status of the landscape of interest, and undertakes a feasibility study of potential future directions. Our approach gives consideration to the existing environmental and economic conditions of the land, and the direction in which the land managers wants to restore the landscape towards.
Ways we can work with you, your organisation and your community include:
- Pre-feasibility and feasibility studies of methodologies and market valuations of different land based abatement and carbon storage projects.
- New methodology development and management through the approvals process for new methodologies through the Australian Government’s independent Domestic Offsets Integrity Committee
- Project Design Documentation (PDD) drafting and management of project registration processes with the Australian Government Department of Climate Change & Energy Efficiency
- Design and deployment of baseline studies to determine existing carbon stores, especially for rangelands
- Development of management regimes to reduce emissions (abatement) and /or sequester additional carbon in and on the land to improve productivity and allow landholder financial diversification
- Assistance with implementation of management regimes
- Development and delivery of carbon accounting systems, to ensure regulatory compliance
- Negotiation and appointment of approved verifiers for credit issuance from the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency
- Holding carbon credit accounts in the Australian National Registry of Emission Units
- Aggregation of small project credit volumes to marketable size
- Development of Emission Reduction Purchase Agreements (ERPA’s) for immediate (“spot”) and future trades of carbon credits developed under accredited projects
- Sourcing buyers for both voluntary and compliance credits
- Policy, program and market knowledge
