Apply for a biodiversity stewardship agreement
If you wish to use your land to generate and sell Biodiversity Credits under the NSW Biodiversity Offsets Scheme, you might want to apply for a Biodiversity Stewardship Agreement with the BCT. Find out more
Submit an Expression of Interest
Before applying for a Biodiversity Stewardship Agreement, you might want to consider submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI). This will allow you to identify potential interested purchasers before proceeding with establishing a BSA.
This is an optional step. You can proceed directly to a BSA, however most landholders will want to identify firm buyers for their credits before establishing a BSA. Learn more about the process to enter a BSA with us here.
If you chose to advertise your interest in setting up a BSA on the EOI register, please complete and return the Expression of Interest (EOI) form below.
