Biodiversity Credit Tenders

 

CLOSED – 2020 Statewide Biodiversity Credit Tender

The BCT opened a biodiversity credit tender to purchase biodiversity credits for the target credit classes listed in Table 1 of the landholder guide. The tender is open to anyone who:

  • owns existing target biodiversity credits established under either the former BioBanking Scheme (BBAM credits) or current Biodiversity Offsets Scheme (BAM credits); or
  • has an existing application for a BSA, that includes target biodiversity credits, that has been formally submitted to the BCT for review.

The biodiversity credit tender is a confidential, reverse auction in which credit owners get to nominate the prices at which they are prepared to sell their existing or pending credits.

The tender process provides an opportunity for credit owners who have submitted a biodiversity stewardship agreement (BSA) application to secure a committed purchase of their credits before the site is established.

Further information is available in the following documents:

The tender period is now closed. 

Following the evaluation of bids, the BCT will notify successful bidders and establish agreements to purchase credits.
