3 July 2013 — Two of Greenfleet’s reforestation projects have been registered under the Clean Energy Regulator’s Carbon Farming Initiative.

Ms Gipton said being registered by the Federal Government’s Clean Energy Regulator gave greater validation to the projects.

“Being registered under the Carbon Farming Initiative means that these two projects have been validated by the peak independent body, which gives greater assurance that the carbon offset in our projects is verifiable,” she said.

The sites are at Old Gobur Road, Merton, in northeast Victoria and the other, Whirrakee Wedderburn, is near the Mt Korong Nature Conservation Reserve, just east of Wedderburn in the Victorian central goldfields. Both projects are now eligible Kyoto offset projects.

To date, Greenfleet has planted more than 7.5 million trees, creating more than 350 native and biodiverse forests for Australians.
