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.
Our science team has quantified that a $50 donation to Greening Australia will plant enough native trees and shrubs to store 1 tonne of emissions (CO2-e). Not sure about your impact? Here’s a rule of thumb:
15 tonnes of CO2-e = the average Australian’s annual carbon footprint
4.3 tonnes of CO2-e = a medium-sized vehicle’s average emissions for 12 months
2 tonnes of CO2-e = a return long haul flight (e.g. Melbourne – Perth)
Your donation to Greening Australia will help capture carbon and mitigate the impacts of climate change. Businesses that donate more than $10,000 can unlock access to our supporter logo. Please click here to send a query to our friendly team.
Our social enterprise, Biodiverse Carbon, is a wholly owned subsidiary company of Greening Australia.
The business takes an integrated approach to carbon planting projects. At every stage, from planning to onground delivery, carbon projects are strategically designed to ensure that economic, community and environmental co-benefits are maximised.
For more information, you can read our explainer on the carbon market.
Biodiverse Carbon currently specialise in large-scale carbon offsets of more than 600 carbon credits (tonnes, tCO2-e).
Greening Australia’s capture of carbon emissions is achieved via various landscape restoration programs. For example, as one of the world’s largest and most ambitious ecological restoration programs, our Great Southern Landscapes program integrates science-led, large-scale plantings into agricultural systems to capture carbon, protect biodiversity and support farm productivity.
