Environmental offset provider expression of interest form

Landholders in Queensland can nominate all or part of their property for environmental offsets through the expression of interest (EOI) process. See becoming an environmental offset provider for more details.

To assist you with identifying the environmental values on your property you can use the free Environmental reports online service. The reports provide information on specific environmental values by location and are emailed to you, these might help with completing this form. You can also access information about South East Queensland koala habitat areas and koala priority areas by visiting Queensland Globe.
