New partnership combines skills and resources of Climate Friendly, South Pole Carbon and Corporate Carbon Advisory

Thursday 13 December 2012
Corporate Carbon Advisory and Climate Friendly have entered a groundbreaking partnership to develop and bring to market projects under the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI).  The partnership will see Corporate Carbon Advisory drive methodology development and project origination, while Climate Friendly, together with its major shareholder South Pole Carbon, will focus on project documentation, offset reporting and procuring the necessary audit services.
Together the companies offer end-to-end carbon project development services to Australian project owners, backed by years of experience in local and global carbon markets.  All companies are committed to working with project proponents, and voluntary and compliance buyers, to bring compliant-ACCUs to the market as quickly as possible.
The focus will be on early action carbon projects that can generate significant volumes of compliant-ACCUs before 30 June 2015, when the fixed price period comes to an end.
“The agreement with Climate Friendly really creates a powerful team that can best capture the opportunities available,” said Matthew Warnken, Managing Director of Corporate Carbon Advisory.  “They have a great team of people who are clearly skilled in the development of carbon projects, and together we can offer a one-stop shop in the CFI market.”
Freddy Sharpe, CEO of Climate Friendly said, “This really is a vote of confidence in the CFI market and the capability of the land-based sectors in Australia to yield meaningful greenhouse reductions.  We are very pleased to be working with Corporate Carbon Advisory, whom we recognise as leaders and specialists in carbon origination activities in Australia.”
“This arrangement will leverage South Pole Carbon’s extensive global experience in developing carbon projects under international standards,” said Business Development Manager Christian Dannecker.  “In addition, we will bring the balance sheet required to bring projects through audit and carbon credit determination processes,” he said.
Any emission reduction project proponent that is interested in generating carbon credits under the CFI should get in touch with any of the parties.  Likewise, any liable entities interested in purchasing compliant-ACCUs can pre-register an interest in purchasing compliant-ACCUs from projects undertaken by the group.
