Australians have an average annual carbon footprint around three times greater than the global average. To reduce our impact, there are many ways we can cut down our emissions, but to truly reverse climate change and bring things back to balance, we will also need to capture carbon on a massive scale.
Greening Australia provides a full range of carbon offsetting services to individuals, landholders, businesses and governments, to help reduce Australia’s carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of a rapidly expanding nation.
Our large-scale reforestation programs are designed to capture carbon emissions whilst providing income for rural landholders, boosting the productivity of our land, providing habitat for our threatened wildlife, and improving air and water quality.
Greening Australia’s large-scale restoration programs are designed to capture carbon emissions whilst providing income for landholders, boosting land productivity, providing habitat for our threatened wildlife, and improving air and water quality.
