Natural Carbon Pty was established as a joint venture in 2014 by Phillip Toyne AO (former Australian environmental and indigenous rights activist, lawyer, founder of Landcare Movement with Rick Farley of NFF, former CEO of the Australian Conservation Foundation) through his company EcoFutures.
When Phillip passed away, his wife, Molly Harriss Olson (CEO of Fairtrade Australia & New Zealand; Board member Global Reporting Initiative) took on his EcoFutures interests in Natural Carbon. At various points in its history, shareholders and partners have included Climate Friendly, South Pole Group, McCullough Robertson and Object Consulting.
In 2019 Natural Carbon issued it’s 1 millionth ACCU. It has worked across savanna burning, human induced revegetation and herd management ERF methodologies.
In late 2020 Natural Carbon’s ownership resorted 100% to EcoFutures and Prof Don Henry AM (Melbourne Enterprise Professor of Environmentalism; Board member of Al Gore’s ‘Climate Reality Project) joined as a Director.
Molly Harriss Olson and Don Henry are currently working with incoming values driven shareholders to set Natural Carbon up to achieve its vision of ‘Fair nature based markets deliver a habitable climate, healthy biodiversity and sustainable communities’.
