Emissions Reduction Fund Projects

Since 2004, we have delivered projects under a range of domestic and international carbon crediting and trading schemes. We act as an Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) agent on behalf of a range of large industrials, transport companies, government agencies and corporates.

Our clients and partners can access our years of experience across all aspects of project establishment, compliance, emissions accounting, carbon credit production and sales, providing for quick and easy entry to carbon markets. We currently have hands-on management responsibility for a number of major ERF projects which are expected to generate over 10 million tonnes of carbon abatement.

For certain projects, our business model does allow us to structure our commercial arrangement so as to share some of the cost and project risk with project proponents. Under these arrangements, CO2 Australia can provide some, or all, of the above services at no charge, in exchange for a share in carbon credit sales revenue. In this way, your up-front costs are reduced and CO2 Australia is incentivised to achieve the best revenue outcome for you.

CO2 Australia typically works as either a consultant, or management agent, where we will:

  • evaluate proposed projects and establish the case for eligibility under the ERF
  • assist with estimating costs and revenues associated with establishing an ERF project
  • help evaluate the business case for the project
  • develop and submit project registration applications to the Clean Energy Regulator
  • undertake data collection, record keeping and emissions accounting
  • develop and submit offsets reports to the Clean Energy Regulator, so as to realise carbon credits
  • manage the ERF auction bidding process, including developing bidding strategies
  • manage audit and compliance processes.

We are here to help

CO2 Australia can assist you and your business understand and and assess opportunities to participate in the ERF. Please contact us for advice.
