Australian first as methodology determination helps build momentum with the Carbon Farming Initiative

Friday 7 December 2012
 
Corporate Carbon Advisory is pleased to announce that Parliamentary Secretary for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, the Hon. Mark Dreyfus, made a Methodology Determination for the diversion of legacy waste through an alternative waste treatment plant under the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI).  This methodology, authored by Corporate Carbon Advisory in association with its client SITA ResourceCo, is the first privately authored methodology for which such a Determination has been made.  
 
Matthew Warnken, Managing Director of Corporate Carbon Advisory, congratulated SITA ResourceCo saying, “The making of this Determination recognises the pioneering achievements of SITA ResourceCo in delivering greenhouse gas abatement.”
 
Recently joined director Julian Turecek observed that there will be no shortage of buyers for the compliant Australian Carbon Credit Units (compliant-ACCUs).  “It is a buyers’ market for compliant-ACCUs with a real shortage of supply in the marketplace,” he said.  “Hopefully now that the private sector is starting to shape methodology development, an increased flow of offsets can be brought to market.”
 
Corporate Carbon Advisory has a series of other methodologies that have been accepted as valid applications and are in various stages of finalisation with either the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency or the Domestic Offsets Integrity Committee.
