Landfill gas methodology determination variation

Closed 26 Apr 2019

Overview

The climate change function transferred to our department from the Department of the Environment and Energy on 1 February 2020.

The Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (the Committee) has completed a periodic review of the Landfill Gas method. The periodic review examined whether the method continues to comply with the six offsets integrity standards set out in section 133(1) of the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011. The earlier crediting period extension review considered whether crediting periods of projects registered under the method should be extended under section 255A of the Act.

The Department of the Environment and Energy has developed an exposure draft variation to the method to implement the Committee's findings in the two reviews.
