Carbon Credits Farming Initiative (Reforestation and Afforestation)
Why support this project?
The project has been designed to be planted in narrow belts and small blocks during 2012 and 2013 expressly for the purpose of carbon abatement. The trees are thriving and contributing to environmentally regenerative outcomes in the surrounding landscape that continue to be farmed by the landholder.
Reforestation has occurred primarily on light sandy patches of land or along denuded stream banks. As the plantings mature and forest canopy is regenerated, a range of potential biodiversity co-benefits is achieved. With both the robust carbon removals and the potential to improve biodiversity outcomes in the project area, this reforestation initiative is a prime example of high-integrity nature-based climate change solutions.
Who we work with
Established in 2005 and based in West Perth, Fasera specialises in carbon sequestration through sustainable agriculture through managed estates of Oil Mallee trees. TEM is the exclusive channel to market for the current credits issued from this project.
Located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, 170 hectares of permanent eucalyptus tree plantings have been strategically established across four farms between the towns of Quairading and Kojonup.
Real and Lasting Impact:
Permanence: Permanence for an Environmental Planting project requires that the carbon sequestered and stored in the plantings will not be released due to unmitigated risk factors such as wildfire and extreme weather events. The project is taking reasonable action to mitigate risks to the permanence of GHG emissions for a nominated 25-year permanence period.
Additionality: A project is additional if the GHG emissions removals would not occur without the intervention of the project activities. Reforestation projects must take place on land that has been clear of forest cover for at least 5 years prior to the commencement of project activities. Reforestation projects should demonstrate that plantings must not have been established prior to registration with the regulator. Furthermore, reforestation projects should demonstrate to the regulator that environmental plantings are not required by Local, State or Federal law. The Max Waters EP project has complied with all requirements, and therefore the project GHG emissions removals are additional.
Leakage: In the context of reforestation projects, leakage refers to the risk that project activities will generate native forest cover decline outside the project area. Leakage risks are considered negligible for reforestation projects.
SDGs: The project meets the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

Where does my money go?
Your purchase goes to the procurement of fully verified and independently audited carbon offset projects. TEM’s operational, due-diligence, risk management and marketing costs are also included in the list price. By purchasing from these projects, you are mobilising capital to support the project’s ongoing operations and benefits, alongside of ensuring measurable emissions reductions and avoidance.
What goes into pricing TEM's offsets on this site?
You may find a difference between the cost of projects listed on this site and the average prices listed on the wholesale carbon market/s. That’s because TEM offers projects where we have gone the extra mile to ensure their integrity and deliver you the end-to-end service that others won’t. Our pricing is fully inclusive of the end-to-end services to ensure integrity, including:
The cost to source, deliver and/or procure projects – Sourcing, purchasing and holding carbon units.
TEM’s proprietary due diligence and risk management for each project – Put simply, we do the work to limit the chance that you will support a project that doesn’t deliver measurable and long-term carbon abatement.
Our retirement process – Following each purchase, every carbon offset purchased on this site can be transparently traced to a retired carbon unit listed on an independent registry.
What will I receive with my purchase?
Once we’ve received your payment, we will:
Send you content and copy relating to the projects you’re supporting. Expect this within 1x business day of your purchase!
Add your company to our customer page. This will show: the projects you have supported and the volume of offsets per project. We won’t share any financial info.
Customers who choose to receive a company-specific retirement certificate will receive a certificate post-payment. You will receive an email once your order is placed to confirm retirement copy for your certificate. If you DO NOT require a company-specific retirement certificate, evidence of retirement will be added to your profile on this website within a month from payment. The cost for a company-specific retirement certificate = $100 per project. Adding this to your cart will refresh the page, so please wait a few seconds if you do select “Yes” for the cart to refresh. Note: you will need individual retirement for Climate Active and other certification purposes.
We will then send you evidence of that retirement, which includes: the listing on each registry that relates to the offsets you have purchased, a TEM-branded retirement certificate, and a link to the customer page (point 2 above).
Keep you updated on new projects as they’re added to TEM Online. Of course-you can choose to opt out of those emails!
