Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI)

Important information on the CFI: In November 2014, Parliament made some significant changes to the legislation which supported the CFI. Parliament passed the Carbon Farming Initiative Amendment Bill 2014 which put into effect amendments to the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011

Amendments came into effect on 13 December 2014, establishing the Emissions Reduction Fund. 

The Department of Environment has a comprehensive list of fact sheets outlining how the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) works. You can access these at - http://www.environment.gov.au/climate-change/emissions-reduction-fund/about – alternatively you can contact the Department on 1800 852 974.

BMRG is running workshops and webinars as the ERF progresses and methodologies available throughout 2015. To receive notification on these, please contact BMRG's Carbon Farming Coordinator on (07) 4181 2999 or via email – admin@bmrg.org.au
