Eligible activities

Under the Emission Reduction Fund eligible emissions reduction activities are included in 'methodology determinations', or 'methods' for short.

Emissions reduction methods set out the rules for estimating emissions reductions from different activities. These methods ensure that emissions reductions are genuine - that they are both real and additional to business as usual operations.

Some types of activities are excluded from participating in the ERF. You can find out more about these on the excluded offsets projects page.

Finalised methods by sector

Project applications using these methods can be made to the Clean Energy Regulator

* Note that the methods listed below include methods transitioned from Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) to the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) on 1 July 2015. Find out more about the CFI transition.
