Project and contract register

We publish information about:

The ACCU Scheme project map is an interactive map of Australia which provides an overview of the volume, location and type of projects happening across the country.

The project register can be used by buyers who want to find possible sources of ACCUs. It can also be used by people who want to buy land that has an ACCU Scheme project on it. This will help them factor into the sale price the potential costs and benefits of the project.

The contract register may be used by ACCU holders who want to find existing contract holders that may be willing to buy their ACCUs. 

ACCUs released during fixed delivery exit arrangement

We have released 126,846 ACCUs to the market during the fourth pilot window of the fixed delivery exit arrangement. These contractors delivered 47,212 ACCUs to meet the 20% minimum partial delivery requirement.

About the carbon abatement contract register

The contract register includes information about:

  • carbon abatement contracts awarded by us
  • contract duration
  • end date and status
  • volume of ACCUs contracted, released and delivered for each contract
  • contract holder and ACCU Scheme project for each contract.

A total of 2,464,442 ACCUs have been sold under carbon abatement contracts to the Commonwealth since 12 January 2023. Under specific circumstances, these ACCUs will be available for use in the Safeguard Mechanism’s cost-containment measure. We will provide more information about the implementation of the cost-containment measure at a later date.

Multiple contracts 

We list each contract separately. Some contractors have multiple contracts. 

Optional delivery contracts 

We have awarded optional delivery contracts since March 2020. These give sellers the option to sell carbon abatement to us. If the seller doesn't exercise their right to sell carbon abatement to us for a given delivery milestone, the volume of abatement committed under the optional delivery contract reduces from the original volume of abatement committed.

Expiry dates

Contracts expire when all obligations are finalised. Contracts will also lapse where conditions precedent haven't been fulfilled or waived by the expiry date set out in the contract. There may be a delay in reflecting a conditions precedent or activated contract ending in the contract register. This is due to ongoing contract negotiations between the seller and us.

Fixed delivery exit arrangements or lapsed optional delivery milestones

From 15 November 2023 the contract register includes information on contract volume that has been released through fixed delivery exit arrangements or through lapsed optional delivery milestones.

Human-induced regeneration (HIR) and native forest from managed regrowth (NFMR) projects

From 12 July 2020, the contract register includes extensions to the delivery periods of some contracts for HIR and NFMR projects. We granted extensions for certain projects after release and implementation of the Guidelines on stratification evidence and records for HIR and NFMR.
