How it works

  • EcoAustralia is a stapled product that blends carbon credits with biodiversity protection. 
  • Each EcoAustralia™ credit combines 1 Australian Biodiversity Unit (ABU) with a 1 tonne carbon credit. 
  • Each ABU represents 1.5 m 2 of government-accredited habitat protection. 
  • Carbon credits for EcoAustralia™ are sourced from high quality international emission reduction projects certified by the Gold Standard.
