Voluntary unit cancellations

People or companies can voluntarily cancel emission units to offset their emissions and can opt to have their cancellation information published here.

Under the Climate Change Response Act 2002, companies or people can voluntarily cancel emission units. One of the reasons they may do this is to offset their emissions. This is unrelated to mandatory obligations under the Emissions Trading Scheme​.
