Environmental Offsetting

An environmental offset compensates for unavoidable impacts on significant environmental matters, (e.g. valuable species and ecosystems) on one site, by securing land at another site, and managing that land over a period of time, to replace those significant environmental matters which were lost.

In Queensland offsets are legislated under the Environmental Offsets Act 1994 this encompasses both State and Local government offsets. Whilst Commonwealth offsets are legislated under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
