Greenhouse Gas Emissions Offsets Policy

The Territory Government has an objective to transition the Territory’s economy to a low carbon economy.

This objective is reflected in the Territory’s target of net zero emissions by 2050 established by the Climate Change response.

The Climate Change Response includes a range of actions designed to support the achievement of this target. One of these actions is the development of a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Offsets Policy under the Northern Territory Offsets Framework. This policy will guide the use of offsets as a tool to support the decarbonisation of industry in the Territory.


A draft Greenhouse Gas Emissions Offsets Policy, which incorporates the Technical Guidelines was released for public consultation from 1 September 2021 to 15 October 2021.
