Outback Carbon

Tackling the challenge of climate change requires a comprehensive approach by communities and governments – encompassing businesses, the wider economy and individuals. To achieve the necessary cuts to GHG emissions, we must seize all viable opportunities to mitigate emissions and store carbon.

So far the primary focus for emissions reductions within Australia and globally has been the energy, transport and the major industrial emitters. The rationale behind this is clear: the energy sector alone constitutes the vast majority of Australian greenhouse gas emissions – 75% in 2007.
