Environmental offsets can be a valuable tool for mitigating environmental impacts, and are becoming increasingly prevalent for environmental decision making by both state and federal environmental agencies. 360 Environmental has considerable expertise in sourcing, and justifying the suitability of environmental offsets for a range of infrastructure projects and environmental impacts.
360 Environmental understands the objectives and decision making process of environmental agencies in respect to the determination and application of appropriate offsets for infrastructure projects. Offset requirements are dependent on the likely level of environmental impacts that will result from the development, and can vary on the basis of which species may be impacted and the conservation status of the environment. Offset objectives and the process for calculating offsets can be different between agencies.
In a changing policy environment and between multiple agencies, offset requirements need careful management. 360 Environmental understand these concerns and are experienced in determining impacts and offset requirements up-front with a high degree of accuracy to inform project planning.
360 Environmental has considerable experience in the preparation of offset strategies and reporting and ongoing negotiation and liaison with relevant assessment agencies to obtain an outcome that benefits the environment and meets the client’s objectives for the project.
360 Environmental undertakes flora and fauna assessments of impact sites and offset sites to ensure proposed offsets are compliant with offset policy requirements.
