Primary industries productivity and abatement

Primary industries productivity and abatement 

To ensure the prosperity of NSW’s primary industries and land sector, the NSW Government is investing $105 million over the next 8 years to 2030. This will support farmers and land managers across the state to reduce their emissions, improve their carbon management, and enhance biodiversity on their land alongside production.

It will also support the sector to increase revenue by accessing environmental markets, accelerating finance for natural capital and low carbon farming, and demonstrating environmental performance to consumers and the supply chain.

The Primary Industries Productivity and Abatement program is a key element of the NSW Net Zero Plan Stage 1: 2020-2030. This Plan outlines NSW’s commitment to halve our emissions by 2030 while safeguarding our prosperity and protecting our way of life.

Net Zero Nature Markets

Landscape at Treloar Creek, NSW

We are developing market and industry foundations 

We will also work with the finance sector to help finance nature-positive and low emissions practices by farmers and land managers. 

Learn more about how the NSW Government is exploring ways to value our natural assets to help us to reach net zero. It's called the nature-positive economy. 

We are building critical mass and capacity 

We will empower farmers and land managers to invest in high impact carbon abatement projects and partnerships, education and outreach. This focus area will build confidence, capability and expertise within the sector to take up opportunities to improve carbon management and access environmental markets.
