Environmental offsets review consultation

The Queensland Government is undertaking a comprehensive review of Queensland’s Environmental Offsets Framework.

The aim is to ensure Queensland’s biodiversity-rich natural environment is protected through a world-class and internationally recognised approach to offset delivery.

The review explores avenues that will encourage greater investment in activities that counterbalance the unavoidable impacts from development practices. It is focussed on achieving improved conservation outcomes and identifying greater opportunities to provide cultural, social and economic benefits to Queensland.

To inform this review, the government has released the discussion paper Review of the Queensland Environmental Offsets Framework (PDF, 2.91MB).

Submissions for feedback on the discussion paper have closed. An action plan will be developed to progress the proposed changes.
