The CO2 AUSTRALIA™ Carbon Sequestration Program (the Program) is dedicated to establishing commercial scale, permanent (greater than 100 years) carbon sinks. The Program, which is unique in the Australian market, involves establishing plantings of mallee eucalypts for the purpose of generating Carbon Credits.
CO2 Australia Limited (CO2 Australia) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the CO2 Group Limited, a company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. CO2 Australia has grown considerably since its beginnings in September 2004.
The company was accredited under the NSW Greenhouse Gas Abatement Scheme (GGAS) as an approved abatement provider in November 2004, and began undertaking Programs for large energy companies.
Large scale Programs to produce the highest quality offsets available (NGACs - NSW Greenhouse Abatement Certificates) were the beginnings of the company, and continue to be the foundation of the CO2 AUSTRALIA™ Carbon Sequestration Program.
However CO2 Australia recognised the demand for high quality offsets in a Retail environment. As such the company now provides offsets to the public with the same high standards as applied to the large Corporates.
