Daintree Discovery Centre Carbon Offset Bio-sequestration Project
At the Daintree Discovery Centre we are concerned about the environmental, social and economic values of the Daintree Rainforest land and the local community in which we live and work. We are committed to fostering environmental enlightenment, interpretation and the conservation of the unique bio-diversity of the Daintree Rainforest. Central to our environmental program is an ongoing commitment to reduce and neutralise the impact of carbon emissions.
The Discovery Centre’s carbon footprint has been audited and strategies developed to avoid, reduce and finally offset CO2 emissions by bio-sequestion. To read more click here Daintree Discovery Centre Carbon Offset Policy
Everything we do at the Centre reinforces the need to preserve this very special ancient rainforest. A series of interconnected, elevated walkways protect the forest’s fragile root systems. Interpretive displays foster environmental sustainability and the Centre models best practice in water conservation, waste management, recycling and eco-friendly design.

Carbon Footprint Audit Process
An external audit of the Daintree Discovery Centre’s carbon footprint was conducted by an independent consultant, Kim Forde. This audit will be reviewed regularly to ensure accuracy and creditbility, and has been used to establish the number of trees that need to be planted to achieve carbon neutrality.
