Reef Credit Scheme

About
A Reef Credit is a tradable unit of pollution reduction

A new way to improve water quality entering the Reef

The Reef Credit Scheme will enable land managers to undertake projects that improve water quality through changes in land management to generate a tradeable unit of pollutant reduction or ‘Reef Credit’. A Reef Credit represents a quantifiable volume of nutrient, pesticide or sediment prevented from entering the Great Barrier Reef catchment.
