Industry guide to help curb carbon emissions

Wednesday, 09 January, 2008

RMIT University's Global Sustainability Institute and EPA Victoria have found the number of carbon offset providers in Australia has doubled over the past six months.

The joint study reveals at least 3.28 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents were traded by Australian carbon offset providers in 2006/07 with a value of at least $44 million.

Global Sustainability at RMIT and EPA have responded to the substantial growth in the market by producing a web-based Carbon Offset Guide.

The guide, found at, delivers a comprehensive and independent directory of Australian offset providers. It also provides a list of prices, project locations, descriptions and accreditation standards for use by businesses, government agencies, NGOs and the public.

The Carbon Offset Guide website will be reviewed and updated every three months.
