4. Implementation

Projects are implemented, monitored and reported on by the landholder and project developer.

5. Verification

Projects are audited by independent expert auditors to confirm the quantity of Credits generated in accordance with the applicable Standard and Methodology.

Eco-Markets Australia issues Credits which are entered on a secure Credit Registry.

7. Sale and retirement

The seller notifies Eco-Markets Australia of the sale of Credits, which are then permanently retired from the Credit Registry.

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.
