About the Institute

The Carbon Market Institute is at the centre of climate change policy and business in Australia. Independent and non-partisan, we bring business, policy makers and thought leaders together to drive the evolution of carbon markets towards a significant and positive impact on climate change.

Engaging leaders, shaping policy and driving action, we’re helping business to seize opportunities in the transition to a low carbon economy.

What’s it all about?

Australia’s Carbon Marketplace is an initiative of the Carbon Market Institute with support from the Australian Government Department of the Environment and Energy, which maintains the National Carbon Offset Standard and the Carbon Neutral Program.

This portal is designed to complement existing market resources and is a central platform for individuals, businesses and anyone interested in understanding more about carbon market dynamics, carbon neutrality & offsetting, and the development of Australia’s carbon farming industry (and carbon credit creation potential). It aims to provide a complete overview of the journey towards net-zero – with a focus on carbon neutrality and the offsetting process.

A key feature of the portal is the comprehensive registry of carbon offsetting projects in Australia. This registry will continue to grow as more project information becomes available and aims to foster stronger commercial interaction between market participants; between buyers and sellers; and between business, project developers and carbon service providers.

We look forward to maintaining this Registry and its associated Market Directory and will continue to work to encourage and support the growth of carbon markets to 2030 and beyond.
