Providing community legal education.

Between July and September of 2019, Norton Rose Fulbright (NRF) contributed to a ‘Carbon Farming Handbook’ for an independent industry body working on and advocating for a transition to a net-zero emission economy. The client’s primary objective is to support the continued evolution and development of Australia’s carbon market and to develop and promote efficient and effective emissions reduction policies.

The Handbook is part of the client’s education and outreach work in collaboration with the government. The final product is intended to be a practical guide on carbon farming for key stakeholders, outlining the business case for carbon farming with the aim of supporting participants looking to unlock opportunities in Australia’s carbon farming industry. NRF advised on steps involved in developing and running a carbon farming project under the Emissions Reduction Fund, as well as providing an overview of common contracts that arise when running carbon farming projects.
