Biodiversity credits – the next big environmental market?


Investors say biodiversity credits have huge potential, but also pose significant risks.

In particular, there are hopes that biodiversity credits could help to monetise biodiversity improvement efforts. A dearth of revenue streams has long been a constraint on conservation finance.

Pollination’s Laura Waterford says: “There’s a lot of buzz around biodiversity credits, but exactly how it comes together is yet to be seen.”

Pollination is advising on the potential market for biodiversity credits in Australia. “We’re talking to potential project developers to understand how their products work, and we’re also talking with corporates about whether or not those types of credits are something that would feed in as part of their nature strategy,” Waterford says.
