Celebrating 20 Years

Our Story

Over our 20-year history, we have restored almost 5,000 hectares of unused and degraded land across Australia.

Based on a concept initiated by Men of the Trees to use the emerging carbon market as a means of increasing native restoration, we began as a non-profit organisation called Carbon Neutral in 2001. 

In 2013, in response to a growing need for corporate environmental and carbon advisory services, Carbon Neutral became Carbon Neutral Pty Ltd. – a ‘profit for purpose’ organisation – and the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund continued as a non-profit – working with individuals and businesses to reduce and offset carbon emissions. 

Carbon Positive Australia is the new name for the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund.

We will continue to use donor funds to provide sympathetic environmental restoration and planting of degraded land. We take a nature led approach and are passionate about providing ecologically sensitive planting that protects our agricultural land and environment. 

We only plant biodiverse native species, and specialise in providing landholders with innovative solutions for carbon planting. We are renowned for our research and monitoring of ecological outcomes.
