Environmental Offsets Agreement A Win For Pilbara

The Morrison Government has reached a landmark agreement with Western Australia to expand one of the nation’s key conservation programs to better protect the unique Pilbara environment.

The agreement means that the Pilbara Environmental Offset Fund will now be able to receive and deploy the environmental offset monies paid by industry under both State and Commonwealth environmental legislation.

The McGowan Government established the Fund in 2018, and an implementation plan for the Fund, developed with Commonwealth input, was released in November 2019.
