Carbon Farming Scorecard

Carbon Farming
Australia’s carbon farming industry has the potential to make significant contributions to our national and global emissions reduction challenge, but this must not come at the expense of integrity and real and scaled up emissions reductions.

The CMI’s Carbon Farming Scorecard presents a snapshot of how Australia’s states, territories and the federal government are supporting carbon farming and its associated benefits.

COP26 hub

Held from the 31st October until the 12th November 2021, the UN’s Climate Summit COP26 was a critical gathering of countries, focused on accelerating action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement.

View CMI’s Key Takeaways report delving into the decisions, outcomes and importantly, the implications of COP26 for Australian business. We have also provided an Article 6 Rulebook Explainer guide.

Our events

The CMI hosts a full calendar of events. Delivered both virtually and in-person, our events bring together thought leaders, investors, regulators, policy makers and sustainability professionals.


Our 8th annual Australasian Emissions Reduction Summit took place on 9 & 10 December, 2021 – Australia’s premier business and climate action event. In 2021, the Summit was fully hybrid, with 1200+ in-person and virtual delegates. It was our biggest Summit to-date.


Code of Conduct

Australia’s world-first climate-related consumer protection code of conduct has moved to full operation, committing the nation’s national carbon industry to higher standards of integrity, transparency and accountability than ever before. 

From 1 July 2021, the Australian Carbon Industry Code of Conduct will expand its powers to handle and investigate consumer complaints; monitor and audit the activities of its 22 carbon service provider Signatories, and take enforcement action against those organisations that deliberately mislead or disadvantage their clients in the community.
