Nutrient Offsets Initiative
From May 2019, Healthy Land and Water will be pursuing a new initiative with a dedicated and concerted effort on environmental nutrient offsets. An environmental offset compensates for impacts to one site, by securing land at another site, and managing that land to replace those environmental values which were impacted or lost. Environmental Offsets is a large, complex market that has many ‘stream’ including, nutrients, terrestrial, marine and koala habitat offsets.

Over the past seven years, Healthy Land and Water has been working with several of ours members to deliver offset projects which focuses on nutrient reduction from point source discharges delivered by sewage treatment plants. We have pioneered the development of end-to-end nutrient offsets projects from concept development, feasibility studies and site selections to implementation and evaluation.
As the demand for environmental nutrient offsets continues to rise, Healthy Land and Water will strive to be the premier market leader in this space.
Our work encompasses the full end-to-end delivery of nutrient offset projects. This includes conceptualisation, feasibility studies, site selection, implementation, onground delivery, landholder and Traditional Owner engagement, and ongoing maintenance and regulatory reporting.
