Independent advisory and leadership across method development

We have been a part of ACCU Scheme method development in Australia since 2018 as a stakeholder or as part of industry groups.  The result has seen successful submissions across technical and operational advisory with positive impact for actors, industry and scheme integrity.

 

We are ready to undertake methodology development with you during open phases. We provide advisory and review on to your proposal against the assessment criteria.

Committed to undertaking method development and stakeholder consultation with our clients in advocacy of their ​aims and integrity of the underlying frameworks.

Advocacy

Australian Carbon Credit Unit 

(ACCU) Regulated Scheme

Supporting clients and industry to create impact by strengthening their advocacy across method development and stakeholder consultation across current and proposed methods. You benefit from technical and legislative advisory and review across Australian soil carbon methods since 2018 at each iteration and scheme change. 

Actively engaging with industry and regulatory frameworks:

  • Developing methods under the ACCU Scheme 

  • Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) legislation & rules

  • Offset Integrity Standards (OIS) including triage

  • Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC).

  • Formal submissions under methodology review and development for the past 7 years, yielding successful outcomes.

Impact

You'll see our contribution across successful CFI ACCU method development of soil carbon methodologies with direct impact:

  • Scaling operationalisation 

  • Unlocking value for the corporate sector

  • Increasing adoption and scaling feasibility

  • Activated changes present in the Chubb review.

Whilst actively working to improve the integrity of the underlying ACCU scheme in synergy.

Belief that industry actors have a significant role to play in positive change that can scale with the impact and integrity of the ACCU Scheme.  Our role is to support those on the ground to participate in this change.

Translating strategy and data driven technical insights to results that are observable in current ACCU Scheme methodology and guidelines.

Results

Interactions with the regulated landscape, have yielded successful submissions, now enshrined in legislation and method guidelines:

  • Change within soil carbon method unlocking Australia's fastest growing agritech start up to participate at scale in the ACCU Scheme, facilitating their entry into carbon markets using their previously methodologically unrecognised value proposition.

  • Changes within methodology and guidance to enable the measurement of soil carbon to scale with integrity: sampling guidance for measurement-based soil carbon methods protocol development; changes to sampling equipment requirements; promoting a culture of safety for sampling technicians.

  • Increasing adoption feasibility by successfully advocating for mechanisms that allows for development of the Newness List of Eligible Activities to occur at pace of innovation.  This led to the proponent led method development approach that allows for activities endorsed by ERAC (adhering to Offset Integrity Standards) to be added to the List, without the constraints of previous timelines associated with methodology development.

Actively supporting the integrity and boundaries of the ACCU Scheme, we assess and align client needs with the intent of the schemes; in this way create feasibility and review assessments and provide technical guidance to support applications for development.
