CFF helps ProTen deliver on their corporate sustainability pledge through integration of 200ha of biodiverse plantings at their poultry farm.


The CFF team is currently working with the broiler chicken farm operator, ProTen, to help them plant 200Ha of native biodiverse trees at their poultry farm in Southern NSW.


ProTen Reducing Their Environmental Footprint  

The sustainability of operations is a core value for ProTen. By planting a diverse mix of native vegetation across the property, this project will help ProTen meet its Environmental Social and Governance targets as well as enhance local biodiversity. 

With the knowledge and assistance of local tree planting experts, CFF helped ProTen finalise the project planting design. Local flora and vegetation communities, as well as cultural heritage aspects, were a key consideration for the tree design.  20-30 native species will be planted across the property, which  will be a mixture of direct seed and seedlings. These species will enhance the remnant vegetation on the property, including Black Box and Boree Woodland species.  


The CFF provided practical and easy-to-use resources to get our project started. They clearly broke down the project’s design and planning stages into a simple step-by-step process. This cleared the way for us to easily make decisions and engage local specialists in our area.

What Was Our Involvement?

The CFF team has been involved in this project from the outset. This involved:

  • Conducting the initial feasibility report that spelt out the project opportunity and financial returns.
  • Distributed practical and easy to understand resources to help get the project off the ground.
  • Coordinating the project delivery and design to ensure it meets the regulatory guidelines and can successfully generate carbon credits.
  • Connecting ProTen with trusted local specialists to help with the design and implementation of the project.

This project is a great opportunity for us to roll up our sleeves and help ProTen strategically integrate a carbon project throughout their existing operation, demonstrating how carbon farming can generate tangible economic and environmental results without locking up valuable farmland.


What are the Project’s Next Steps?  

As part of our service, CFF have connected ProTen with trusted local service providers, Cassina Environmental and Riverina Revegetation to undertake the on-the-ground delivery of the project. 

The project will be registered with the Clean Energy Regulator and once implemented, these planted trees will start generating carbon credits!
