The Australian Carbon Industry Code of Conduct (the Code) is a world-leading domestic protection code for Australia’s carbon industry.
This voluntary and industry-led Code aims to promote market integrity, consumer protection and appropriate interaction with carbon project stakeholders, including landholders, Native Title Holders, representative bodies, land managers and project developers.
Signatories to the Code are committed to developing and conducting their business in line with industry best practice and interacting with their clients and other stakeholders in a professional and ethical manner.
The Code is implemented by the Code Administrator, which is an independently managed team, hosted by the Carbon Market Institute (CMI).
The Code aims to address issues that impact on the reputation of the carbon industry and promote international leadership on carbon project development. It is the first voluntary consumer protection code of its kind globally, focused on improving the integrity of a national (domestic) carbon industry.
