Our pledge

The Aboriginal Carbon Fund is a national not-for-profit company building and nurturing a sustainable Aboriginal carbon industry. We work with Indigenous ranger groups and Traditional Owners to support viable carbon economies being established on Aboriginal lands.

The major carbon abatement activity involves savanna burning projects which reduce wildfires thus reducing greenhous gas emissions, looking after country and generating Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCU) with co-benefits.

The ACCU have a range of social, cultural, environmental and economic co-benefits which directly address;

  • UN Sustainability Development Goals,
  • Reconciliation Action Plans, and
  • Corporate Social Responsibility goals

The AbCF is developing the Aboriginal carbon industry through developing a co-benefit certification scheme using international development model approach (i.e. South by South), training certificate II in carbon farming and an investment fund in the voluntary market.

    Our stories

    Rowan Foley is a Badtjala man and former Park Manager of Uluru. He was invited by the Australian Governement to speak at Bonn UNFCCC 2015 and attended the Paris Agreement COP 21.

    The vision of the Aboriginal Carbon Fund is to nurture and build a sustainable Aboriginal carbon industry. In doing this, our aim is to build wealth for Traditional Owners with environmental, social, cultural and economic co-benefits through the ethical trade of carbon with Corporate Australia and international bodies. 

    To meet this vision, Aboriginal Carbon Fund was established in 2010 as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.

    We activiely work with Aboriginal rangers and Traditional Owners on carbon farming projects in Cape York, Top End and the Gulf of Carpentaria.

    The Aboriginal Carbon Fund have supplied ACCU to major Australian companies (i.e. NAB) and are active members of the Carbon Market Institute.
