Carbon Sequestration Potential in Western Australia

Reviewing carbon sequestration opportunities

Supporting the resource sector’s carbon offset activities with soil carbon sequestration

To support carbon-emission reduction goals, the resource sector is looking at ways to use vegetation and soil for storing carbon. Our client commissioned us to investigate factors influencing carbon sequestration in Western Australia and identify areas with the most sequestration potential.

We conducted a comprehensive literature review and meta-analysis of the latest environmental planting and soil carbon studies by soil type and rainfall zone to inform benchmarks for local sequestration projects. Once we determined the optimal parameters of biophysical, chemical, and climatic factors, we ran the publicly available spatial information through GIS-based analysis to identify local regions with the most carbon sequestration potential for each of the methods approved by the Australian Emissions Reduction Fund.

This review will inform our client’s investment in carbon offset activities through soil carbon and planting native vegetation (environmental plantings).
