Release of carbon farming initiative positive and negative list consultation paper.

The Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency released the positive and negative list discussion paper for the Carbon Farming Initiative yesterday.

The positive list identifies activities that would be considered additional and eligible to participate in the scheme while the negative list identifies activities that are ineligible in certain circumstances because they risk adverse impacts on communities and the environment.

The consultation paper provides an opportunity for stakeholders to comment on the approach to developing the positive and negative lists and to propose activities for consideration. All Submissions are due on 30th June.
