Australian agriculture contributes around 14% of national greenhouse gas emissions but also manages significant carbon stocks in soils and trees. Most international supply chain companies have now set targets for lower emissions supply, starting in 2030 and consistent with the Paris Climate Agreement of net zero by 2050.

In response, agricultural commodity groups have set their own matching targets, with the Australian red meat industry aiming to reach carbon neutrality by 2030.

To achieve this, upskilling farmers and industry professionals in carbon farming processes is vital. There is also a need to provide farmers and industry with clarity about climate policy, carbon accounting, and emerging options for them to reduce emissions while remaining profitable.

Designed and delivered by industry experts in sustainable agriculture, this comprehensive short course will equip you with key practical skills and a stronger understanding of how to conduct a carbon audit, identify offset methods, and reduce farm emissions to meet future supply chain targets.

Carbon Neutral Agriculture supports both 100% online and face-to-face learning. Our online offering runs for two weeks, and our bespoke face-to-face course is delivered via an immersive 1.5 day workshop at locations throughout Australia. Both options provide a deeper understanding of sustainable farming practices.

Explore new techniques in carbon farming

Gain practical experience in the latest research for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving carbon sequestration in soils and trees for your farming business.

Create an effective carbon-farm plan

Develop your knowledge of carbon accounting and learn to conduct a full carbon audit you can apply to your farming enterprise.  You'll use a real-world farm case study to complete a carbon audit that identifies emissions and effective strategies to reduce them across a range of farm activities.

Be equipped with future skills

Deepen your understanding of carbon farming and equip yourself with sustainability skills that are driving change in Australian agriculture. Upon completion of this course, you will be well-versed in carbon farming and equipped with the skills needed to develop sustainable, low-emissions farming systems.
