About the LPIN

The Land and Primary Industries Network consolidates industry, government, community and research expertise in emissions reduction, fostering the innovation and growth of commercialisation and technology adoption.

The Network leverages significant near-term subsidy opportunities in existing near-ready tech and practices in the NSW land sector.

Our aim is to overcome behavioural and knowledge barriers, and policy and regulatory constraints to assist landholders and companies in adopting decarbonisation solutions. The extensive expertise across our Network members and affiliates will offer sector-specific advice to government to support rapid & effective deployment of low carbon solutions.
