What we do

We work collaboratively with our clients and the land, to deliver an end-to-end service spanning the full spectrum of a carbon farming project, working as one.

We guide our clients with expert advice, to mitigate risk and maximise potential. No false solutions or empty promises. Because when nature wins, we all win.

We complete technical and commercial feasibility of rural land for its integrated carbon and agricultural opportunity to inform land acquisition decisions.

Our native reforestation projects are designed and delivered by a team with decades of experience and knowledge. We have a full, in-house complement of on-the-ground staff, geospatial experts, and the regulatory experience to deliver packaged carbon projects.

Our approach

We aim to maximise the economic and environmental value of agricultural properties through the development of intelligent, high quality carbon projects in a way that optimises both the carbon and agricultural opportunity of the land we work on.

Our approach to the reforestation, restoration and refurbishment of landscapes involves in-depth knowledge of natural processes, ecological restoration techniques and conventional agricultural land use such as grazing and cropping.

Understanding the local climate, soil conditions, and native plant species is crucial for creating resilient and biodiverse carbon farming projects. Additionally, community engagement and collaboration with relevant stakeholders are essential for the success of reforestation projects, as they provide valuable insights, support, and long-term commitment to sequestering carbon. This comprehensive approach ensures that reforested areas thrive integrate with agriculture and benefit the ecology, economy and surrounding communities for generations to come.

1. We start at the beginning

We can provide a range of services, from either one-off advice to move you forward, or via long-term support to guide you all the way. We are unique in providing end-to-end fee-for-service project development advice, delivery, maintenance and management

2. Educate and Engage

Foundational knowledge of Australia’s legislation and carbon market and emerging biodiversity markets are essential. It creates a shared understanding of project outcomes for our clients and allows for an aligned future. With knowledge and engagement, we collaborate with our stakeholders to develop effective strategies and quickly identify right-fit opportunities for carbon and sustainable agriculture projects.

3. Actionable Strategies

Failing to implement a well thought through strategy may undermine the success and good will of a carbon farming project. Covalent has experience with a wide range of stakeholders across multiple sectors, each with their own value drivers and carbon abatement needs. We will always develop a strategy specific to individual needs and desired outcomes. We understand what's required on the ground and guide the strategy to make sure it can be easily operationalised to maximise social, environmental and economical values.

4. Tailored Implementation

We never shy away from a challenge, but are realistic with what is possible, helping you to understand the risks and project outcomes along the way. These are projects that span decades, and with our market insight and experience we will guide you through the process so you always see what’s coming. We share the journey with you, all the way to completion.
