This Methodology Determination (method) provides the rules for crediting emissions reductions to landholders who establish permanent (non-harvest) forest through planting a mixture of native species, or mallee trees. As part of the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF), crediting is based on carbon sequestered in the trees as they grow.
The department is responsible for developing the methods and has policy oversight of the ERF.
The Clean Energy Regulator manages project registration, compliance, and crediting emissions reductions for projects under the ERF. To use this method in your project and take part in the ERF, you need to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator.
