Carbon Neutral

ACCU Australian Carbon Credit Unit

 An ACCU is a unit issued to a person by the Clean Energy Regulator (Regulator) by making an entry for the unit in an account kept by the person in the electronic Australian National Registry of Emissions Units (Registry)2. Each ACCU issued represents one tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2-e) stored or avoided by a project. An ACCU can only be issued to a person if the person has a Registry account3 and a Registry account can only be opened by a person after the Regulator has considered whether they are a ‘fit and proper person’4.
