About Eco-Markets Australia

Eco-Markets Australia is the country's first independent environmental markets administrator. We are a not-for-profit organisation. We create opportunities for farmers, graziers and land managers to be paid for the work they do in improving our environment. We do this by administering crediting schemes that explicitly measure, value and pay for the work of farmers in contributing to environmental outcomes.


Problem solvers

As Australia's only administrator of voluntary environmental markets, we provide independent administration services for environmental standards, methodology development and registry platforms. We're ensuring that sustainable financing has credible products.

New markets

The Reef Credit Scheme is the first environmental market we are administering. Going forward, Eco Markets Australia is seeking to develop and manage other environmental market schemes. If you are an environmental markets developer or the administrator of an existing scheme or standard, and are interested in working with us, we would love to hear from you.

Work with Eco-Markets Australia


Administer environmental markets

We administer voluntary Australian environmental markets. The first product that has been developed is the Reef Credit Scheme – a world-first environmental market scheme designed to improve the quality of water flowing to the Great Barrier Reef.

Develop Standards & Methodologies

We develop environmental crediting Standards, and consultation and approval mechanisms for Methodologies that enable sustainable land and resource projects to deliver verified environmental outcomes.

Provide secure credit tracking

Our Environmental Registry provides Project Proponents with the ability to list and register projects, and issue, transfer and retire Reef Credits. The secure online platform uses unique serial number tracking to ensure transparency, traceability, and integrity for all Reef Credits.
