Agriculture and land sector climate plan

5 January 2024

We submitted to the Agriculture and Land Sector Climate Plan that the Government needs to address the biggest source of land sector emissions, namely clearing of native vegetation either for native forest logging or for pasture. Given growing international demand for high quality, high integrity carbon and biodiversity credits, the Government has the opportunity to create an export industry based on recognising and rewarding natural capital values. This could fund significant land restoration while boosting and diversifying Australian exports.
