On 1 July 2014, a new environmental offsets framework was introduced in Queensland, which compensates for unavoidable impacts on significant environmental matters, such as highly valuable species and ecosystems.

The framework streamlines environmental offsets through an outcome-based approach, which removes the complexities and duplication associated with the former offsets framework and aligns offsets across all three levels of government.

The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEHP) will present a summary of the Environmental Offsets Framework, including some of the key principles and tools:

  • the 'avoid, mitigate, offset' approach underpinning the State's assessment and decision making processes in relation to environmental matters
  • what is an offset?
  • the Act, Regulation and Policy
  • prescribed activities
  • prescribed environmental matters
  • determining significant residual impact
  • offset delivery options
  • the financial settlement calculator
  • advanced offsets
  • implementation tools such as the Strategic Offset Investment Corridors (SOICs).

We hope you will be able to join us.
