Welcoming Climate Friendly as a Core Partner of Nature Positive Economy CRC

December 7, 2023

We are excited to announce Climate Friendly as the latest core partner of the Nature Positive Economy CRC. This partnership marks a significant stride towards our collective goal of achieving a nature-positive Australia by 2050.

Climate Friendly‘s Vision and Impact

Climate Friendly is not just an organization; it’s a beacon of hope and action in the fight against climate change. With their commitment to decarbonizing Australia’s land sector, Climate Friendly is helping to repair nature and store carbon, thus contributing significantly to the nation’s Net Zero emissions target.

Their extensive work includes partnering on more than 160 projects across 10 million hectares, focusing on carbon farming and biodiversity conservation. To date, they have achieved an incredible feat of abating 30 million tonnes of carbon, and their goals for the future are even more ambitious.

The Motivation Behind Joining Nature Positive Economy CRC

Climate Friendly‘s decision to join forces with us stems from a shared vision and an urgent need to develop practical, scalable solutions in conservation economics. Their dedication to advancing nature-based solutions aligns perfectly with our mission to foster a robust market for carbon offsetting, biodiversity credit trading, and other sustainable activities.

The Excitement for Collaborative Innovation

For Climate Friendly, the Nature Positive Economy CRC represents a platform for innovation and collaboration. They are particularly excited about developing scalable, low-cost solutions for rapid deployment of nature-based projects and ensuring financial sustainability while promoting strong local ownership and fair benefit sharing with Indigenous peoples and local communities.
