Scenic Rim Regional Council is participating in the South East Queensland Council of Mayors Carbon Sink initiative. The regional carbon sink initiative involves a number of SEQ councils planting trees which will absorb carbon emissions to create a more sustainable future for the three million people who live in SEQ. The carbon sink is located near Bromelton and was the second to be established after Redland Shire Council launched a pilot site in July 2009. A carbon sink makes use of the natural processes and cycles of trees, plants and soil which soak up carbon dioxide and temporarily store the carbon in wood, roots, leaves and the soil. The planting of trees in the Scenic Rim’s carbon sink has been funded by contributions from Scenic Rim Regional Council, Gold Coast City Council, Logan City Council, Redland Shire Council, Brisbane City Council and Sunshine Coast Regional Council.
