The API is focused on the future of the professional and is systematically reviewing its standards to meet the changing and future needs of its Members. 

The API has drafted a new guidance paper that is intended to provide information and guidance to API Members who provide professional services including valuations of carbon farming projects or real property which supports, or is proposed to support, a carbon farming project. 

Carbon farming is an established and growing industry which is making a significant contribution to Australia’s climate change response.  Carbon farming refers to practices that increase carbon storage in the landscape or avoid the release of greenhouse gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide, through active management of vegetation, fire, soil and/or livestock. 

The API is please to release this paper as an Exposure Draft for review and consultation.
