Australian Carbon Credit Unit (ACCU): A unit of carbon credit used in Australia's carbon market to represent one tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent.
Emission Reduction Fund (ERF): An Australian government initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by purchasing carbon credits from eligible projects that reduce emissions.
Carbon Sequestration: The process of capturing and storing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, often through the growth of vegetation and soil carbon storage.
Soil Organic Carbon: Carbon found in organic matter in soil, including dead plant material, microorganisms, and their waste products.
Carbon Farming: A set of land management practices aimed at increasing the amount of carbon stored in soils and vegetation, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Carbon Credits: A permit or certificate that allows a company or organisation to emit a specific amount of greenhouse gases, or the equivalent value of a reduction in emissions.
Carbon Baseline Soil Sampling: The process of collecting soil samples to determine the baseline level of soil organic carbon, used as a reference for future changes in carbon storage.
Baselining Soil Carbon: The process of determining the initial level of soil organic carbon, used as a reference for future changes in carbon storage.
Regenerative Farming Systems: Agricultural systems that focus on enhancing and restoring the health and fertility of the soil, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Regenerative Agriculture: An approach to farming that seeks to restore and enhance the health and fertility of the soil, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting biodiversity.
Regenerative Grazing: A grazing management system that aims to restore and enhance the health and fertility of the soil and vegetation, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting biodiversity.
Holistic Grazing Management: A grazing management system that considers the entire ecosystem, including the soil, vegetation, and animal health, to promote sustainability and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Rotational Grazing: A grazing management system where livestock are moved from one pasture to another on a regular basis, allowing for rest and regrowth of vegetation, and reducing the impact of grazing on the land.
