Find credit buyers and sellers


There are many ways to find buyers and sellers to trade biodiversity credits, including:

Biodiversity credits public registers

The department is required to maintain public registers that provide information about people who are looking to buy and sell biodiversity credits. You can use these public registers to find credits you need and contact buyers and sellers.  

The 2 main credits registers are:  

BioBanking public registers, which were established under the repealed Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (NSW) for the previous BioBanking Scheme, may also include relevant supply and demand information. All credits and obligations created under the previous scheme remain valid under transitional arrangements.  

Visit the BioBanking public registers. 


Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy and clarity of the information provided on these registers. However, you should exercise judgement when using this information and consider obtaining expert advice. 

Biodiversity Credits Catalogue

The department’s Biodiversity Credits Supply Taskforce regularly publishes a Biodiversity Credits Catalogue

The catalogue provides credit owners with a cost-free and easy way to advertise available biodiversity credits and connect with potential buyers. Buyers can also use the catalogue to browse a variety of credits listings and directly contact sellers.
