Corporate Sustainability Consulting

Our assessment of the carbon footprint of crops or livestock products in the agricultural sector is a comprehensive cradle-to-distribution center approach that tracks emissions throughout the entire supply chain (Scope 1, 2, and 3). The final result is a clear and accurate representation of the net impact per unit delivered at the distribution center, enabling transparency and sustainability in the industry. This accurately reflects the net impact of the product (crop, livestock, or entire farming operation) on the environment.

 

For instance, with meat products, our assessment starts at the farm and follows the journey through backgrounding, feedlot, abattoir, primary processing, secondary processing, and finally delivery to the distribution center. This cradle-to-distribution center approach provides a comprehensive evaluation of all emissions in the meat production process.

Public Notice: Ground Truth Australian Orchards Project

Promoting improved Agriculture Land Management Practices Across Australia

This is to bring to your attention that Carbon Friendly Pty Ltd is acting as the Project Proponent for the grouped project titled “Ground Truth Australian Orchards” (VCS ID 4118). The Project involves the implementation of a combination of project activities, including the application of organic materials and mulch to reduce the reliance on synthetic fertilizers and to improve soil health; cover cropping and inter-row biomass generation; establishment of permanent tree crops; improved water management; and others. 

 

Carbon Friendly Pty Ltd has joined forces with several landholders to act as Implementation Partners in executing these project activities. 

 

The primary objective is to achieve significant greenhouse gas emission reductions and removals. As a result of these effort, Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) may be generated. These VCUs will be claimed by Carbon Friendly Pty Ltd under VERRA (formerly known as the Verified Carbon Standard) as carbon credits for their commitment to sustainability. 

 

These Carbon Credits will be distributed to the Project Implementation Partners. The issuance of carbon credits is essential in acknowledging and rewarding the efforts of all involved parties in contributing to environmental sustainability. 

 

The purpose of this public notice is to provide transparency about the Ground Truth Australian Orchards Project and its carbon credit claims. We strive to engage all stakeholders in this journey towards a greener future and seek your support and cooperation.
