Closed 1 Jun 2019

Opened 1 Jun 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 has completed a periodic review of the Land and Sea Transport Method. This review investigated 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. It also considers whether crediting periods of projects registered under the method should be extended under section 255A of the Act.

The Committee undertook public consultation to inform its review and invited interested businesses, community organisations and individuals to make a submission. The public consultation period closed on 1 June 2019.

The department will consider possible variations to the method to address the findings in the review. All variations to the Emissions Reduction Fund methods are released for public consultation.
