Biodiversity Offset Payment Calculator

The Offsets Payment Calculator is an interactive tool designed to determine how much a developer must pay into the Fund to satisfy their offset obligation. The primary aim of the calculator is to provide a price that accurately predicts the costs that the BCT will incur in securing each type of biodiversity credit as an offset. Under the Biodiversity Offsets Scheme, a proponent can choose to pay into the Biodiversity Conservation Fund to meet an offset obligation. This is an alternative to retiring credits. By doing this, the responsibility of finding an offset is transferred to the Biodiversity Conservation Trust.
