Carbon Farming Road Map

223 The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) ().9 February 2023). Can the minister advise: as part of the carbon farming road map are individual farmers being advised to seek their own independent counsel on the risks that are associated with carbon farming?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): I am advised:

The carbon farming road map does not prescribe action to individual farmers.

The carbon farming road map provides a framework for government, industry and private enterprise to collaborate to increase the realisation of opportunities provided by carbon farming within South Australia.

In accordance with best practice carbon market integrity, transparency and accountability, it is recommended that farmers seek counsel from an organisation that is signatory to the carbon industry code of conduct.
