Carbon Positive Australia

Carbon Positive Australia is an Australian charity that has been restoring degraded lands through ecologically sensitive planting for the last 21 years. To date we have restored over 5,000 hectares, planted over 6 million trees and captured almost 650,000 tonnes of carbon, collaborating with landholders, communities and environmental organisations.

We encourage everyone to make climate-healthy choices that go beyond being ‘carbon neutral’. While reducing our carbon dioxide emissions is essential to limit the impacts of climate change, developing a ‘carbon positive’ approach has wider social, environmental and economic benefits. Our educational tools – such as our new carbon footprint calculator – help all Australians to understand their impact and take action for a healthy climate. Everyone is welcome in our community of practical changemakers!
