Is Carbon Sync a signatory to the Australian Carbon Code of Conduct and if so, what does this mean?
Yes, Carbon Sync is proud to be a signatory to the Australian Carbon Industry Code of Conduct. The Code is a voluntary code and is designed to provide guidance to project developers and carbon project stakeholders.
Carbon Sync has signed up to this voluntary code as a signal to all stakeholders that we aim to meet the expectations of the code. These stakeholders include project owners, land managers, industry bodies and Native Title Holders.
Carbon Sync being a signatory means that in developing our products and services, we aspire to deliver industry best practices. We have given consideration to all the risks involved in establishing and managing a carbon project. Further, we have designed our carbon projects to minimise those risks to all relevant stakeholders. Our adherence to this code ensures that certain standards for operating a carbon project have been met.
Furthermore, in the presentation of our offering to potential customers, we are required to give you all the information you may need to make an informed decision. The Australian Carbon Code of Conduct also has a complaints-handling procedure to support farmers in the event they have a problem with a carbon project developer.
You can see the list of signatories to the Code on the Carbon Market Institute website.
