CARBON: Cotton and the Emissions Reduction Fund

The Emissions Reduction Fund is the centrepiece of the Australian Government's climate change policy; designed to help meet the nation's target of reducing emissions to five percent below the year 2000 levels.

CottonInfo and NSW DPI have developed a series of six fact sheets designed to outline the opportunities for the cotton industry under the Emissions Reduction Fund. These six fact sheets can be downloaded via the links below.
