If you have not already done so, you might want to alert your readers to the opportunity to comment to the ACCC on Trade Practices issues relating to companies or industries that are making claims about their carbon offset activities, and how these should be verified and substantiated. The website with submission information and a short discussion paper is at:
http://www.accc.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/807902

The timeframe is tight, by 15 Feb, but submissions can be brief and can be made orally or in writing. Certain key industry players in Tasmania will already be lodging their submissions as I type.
