Ecologist surveying native Australian vegetation

Free live webinar: Make Offsets Great Again!

Are you involved in projects that include the removal of native vegetation?

Join Biosis and Vegetation Link on Wednesday 27 May for a free, live webinar covering the Victorian native vegetation guidelines, planning controls and the offset market – supply, demand and efficacy.

Biosis Senior Ecologist Matt Looby will review native vegetation planning controls and explain clause 52.17 and the supporting policy (which can be daunting for many planners). This short presentation will provide an overview of how the system works, the key players, and where to find further information.

Vegetation Link Strategic Projects Manager Sid Larwill will follow with a review of the offset market in Victoria, covering:

  • How the offset market works
  • How the market is changing
  • Key trends in terms of supply, demand and efficacy of the market
  • A review of native vegetation offset trading: statewide and by CMA
  • Successes and challenges.

Biosis Senior Environmental Planner Mitchell Deaves will host and moderate the discussion, ensuring attendees have ample opportunity to put questions to our specialists. We hope to see you there!
