Biodiversity Offset Payment Calculator: update schedule

Find out our proposed schedule for updating biodiversity credit prices for the Calculator.

Message to all Biodiversity Offsets Payment Calculator users

The BOPC has not been updated for the September 2020 quarter in light of the very low volume of trades during this period (with just 21 trades occurring in the quarter). As a result, the existing BOPC will continue to apply. The next scheduled update will follow the December quarter 2020.

Purpose

The aim of this page is to provide certainty to all BOPC users about the release of updated biodiversity credit prices.

Important information

The release of updated biodiversity credit price will occur on the last working day of the month following each quarter (as per the below calendar).

Updated biodiversity credit prices are valid once both the BOPC online tool version number and the date are upgraded. (See the up-to-date BOPC User Guide to locate the version number of the calculator.)
