In 2017, natural resource management not-for-profits Terrain NRM and NQ Dry Tropics, and environmental markets investor, GreenCollar, established a partnership to guide the development of the Reef Credit Scheme. Supporting this partnership, is an Interim Steering Committee comprising the Chief Executive Officers from each of the three organisations.
Interim Steering Committee Members
Carole Sweatman – Chief Executive Officer, Terrain NRM
Scott Crawford – Chief Executive Officer, NQ Dry Tropics
James Schultz -Chief Executive Officer, GreenCollar
The Interim Steering Committee is supported in its work by a Reef Credit Secretariat (Executive Coordinator – Christine Michael). The Reef Credit Secretariat is currently hosted by NQ NRM Alliance Ltd (t/a Corporate Nature).
The role of the Interim Steering Committee will cease once the Reef Credit Scheme is operational. Governance of the Reef Credit Scheme will then transfer to an independent not for profit company.
