How are farmers being rewarded in the carbon markets?

And what can they expect in the future?

We’re only 26 days out from the Inaugural Nature-Based Solutions Conference & Expo … 

Get inspired as we look at Day 2 at a glance!

The evolution of carbon farming for trade – the markets and methods have come a long way, and we can now look to an expanding industry.

With pressures from every direction, farmers need to be flexible and agile in finding income diversity. So, on day two we look at keeping agriculture profitable in the new carbon economy.

What does the landscape look like? Is this market for you? We’ll explore:

Day 2 – Tuesday 18 July

  • Global Agricultural Leadership – how key trading partners are able to understand Australia’s response to sustainability and the changing climate; and how this could be of benefit;
  • Carbon markets supply and demand – the various market drivers, pricing, and scale of demand now and in the future. What price is Carbon in 2030?
  • Greenwashing in the carbon offset space – how to identify greenwashing, how to avoid it, and ensure your activities are transparently verified to maintain your social license;
  • Precision measurement for both profitability and asset integrity – advances in model-based measurement. How will this benefit lowering the costs of soil carbon implementation?
  • The process of going carbon neutral and achieving certification;
  • Carbon neutral vs selling carbon credits and the pros and cons of each;
  • Building capacity and supporting farmers through advice and planning;
  • New method development pathways
  • Keeping red meat profitable – future food security, breeding the animal to suit the climate and markets, and supporting farmers on their decarbonisation journey. Farmers as innovators in this market;
  • The road ahead – global ISO standards and implications for method development
  • The most common questions for the Clean Energy Regulator – what answers are available?
  • Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) information and reporting. What do you need to know?
  • CMI code of conduct  – why is it important in assisting the integrity of Australia’s carbon crediting framework? Should all carbon credit developers be part of this code?
