Australia’s carbon farming industry is well positioned to make a significant contribution to our national emissions reduction challenge. This rapidly evolving industry has the potential to deliver important environmental outcomes, help to increase agricultural productivity, and open up new markets – generating important new job and revenue opportunities for rural and regional Australia.
The Carbon Farming Industry Roadmap envisions a vibrant domestic carbon farming industry that contributes significantly to Australia’s economy, community and climate repair. By 2030 the sector will:
- create jobs and revenue for regional communities;
- contribute significantly to Australia’s net-zero emissions trajectory; and
- enable a range environmental, social and cultural benefits.
