The Climate Solutions Fund (CSF), formally known as the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF), was established by the Australian Government as a voluntary offset program providing new economic opportunities for farmers, forest growers and landholders. The CSF aims to help the environment by reducing the levels of carbon pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.
As a carbon project holder, you can choose to bid into an auction system managed by the Clean Energy Regulator to sell Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) to secure income. The CSF purchases ACCUs for project holders should a bid be accepted. You can then sell the ACCUs to other buyers in a secondary market (non-government), these buyers may have a requirement to offset greenhouse gas emissions produced by their operations, or they may be voluntarily choosing to offset their emissions.
Your carbon farming project must be conducted with an approved method to be eligible to participate in an ERF/CSF project.
