GreenCollar and CSIRO team up for collaborative research project in the Western Division.

Sydney, NSW – 15 September 2016

GreenCollar is pleased to announce our research team is undertaking a collaborative environmental research program with CSIRO to increase the understanding of landscape productivity at the property level and to maximise the benefits gained from implementing carbon farming projects. The on-ground sampling for this research will be conducted on sites south west of Cobar over the coming years.

GreenCollar CEO and co-founder, James Schultz said “The collaborative research project with CSIRO in the Western Division is extremely important for understanding carbon sequestration potential and the future development of Emissions Reduction Fund Methods.”

GreenCollar have the largest portfolio of carbon projects in the country and are collaborating with CSIRO to evaluate extensive forest inventories collected from their projects across the region. This data, coupled with on-ground work on a number of sites will inform further development of FullCAM, Australia’s National Carbon Accounting Software, and improve its application for Emissions Reduction Fund projects.

GreenCollar Head of Research, Dr Jenny Sinclair said “This is an extremely important research collaboration focused on an ecosystem pivotal to Australia’s greenhouse gas abatement and agricultural sector, that enables the further development of Australia’s National Carbon Accounting system”.

GreenCollar have developed over 90 carbon farming projects in the Western Division. These projects have been made possible through strong collaboration with local farmers and graziers. Importantly these projects have provided farmers and graziers with access to revenue streams from the Commonwealths Emissions Reduction Fund, allowing capital reinvestment back into on farm productivity improvements and the local economy more broadly.

GreenCollar has built strong relationships with the local community, including regional organisations such as ORANA Regional Development and local natural resource management groups. Moreover these projects have allowed GreenCollar to undertake a range of research programs on key properties across the Western Division.

One of the project sites being used to gather on-ground data is on the property The Meadows, owned by the former mayor of Cobar Peter Yench. Peter has been a long-time proponent of carbon projects in the Western Division and, amongst other graziers in the region, is assisting GreenCollar with access to his property to undertake critical research relevant to this region.
