Scoping study for cattle production, carbon and sequestration
Technical and business case evaluation of properties suitable for the dual purpose of cattle management and tree establishment to meet development approval conditions on carbon and vegetation offsets.
Development conditions requiring establishment of trees for biodiversity and carbon sequestration represented a substantial cost liability.
Verterra identified the opportunity to integrate the regulatory liability for tree establishment with opportunities for improvement of operational efficiencies in livestock management. Verterra was able to prepare a business case to establish the capacity of the integrated approach to deliver cost savings and improved management and compliance outcomes.
Benefit to Client:
The project will help the client evaluate the most cost effective option to reduce cattle management costs and meet mine development approval conditions.
