Presentation by Alan Key – Managing Director, Earthtrade on 18 May, 2017.
Offset legislation and policy is becoming more developed and widespread to support various countries’ jurisdictions and corporate organisations’ no-net-loss policies. Implementation of an offset or of a no-net-loss policy is a matter that involves both a technical approach as well as an understanding of the financial, legal and on-ground implications, in addition to an understanding of the costs and the business case.
In this webinar, a recent offset project from the state of Queensland, Australia will be presented which involves an offset requirement for three mining companies and an indigenous landholder who is supplying the offset. The presentation will explore the technical aspects of the impact site versus the offset area, as well as the legal, financial and implementation challenges, and the resulting successful approach that was utilised.
