Unpublished report to the New Zealand Department of Conservation. The Biodiversity Consultancy Ltd.: Cambridge, UK.By The Biodiversity Consultancy View Publication
This report has been prepared for the Biodiversity Offset Program (BOP) of the New Zealand
Department of Conservation to help advance offset thinking in New Zealand and as a contribution to the Business and Biodiversity Offset Programme1, of which BOP is a member. Given the pioneering nature of the subject, it is not intended as a definitive work but as a stimulus for discussion and broader debate. Biodiversity offsets are increasingly used globally for mitigation of development impacts. This report assesses appropriate limits to biodiversity offsets, and categories of offsetability below these limits.
