SEQ Catchments is incorporated as a Company limited by guarantee and is jointly owned by the SEQ Catchments Members’ Association Inc (SEQCMA) and the Council of Mayors (SEQ).
As a Company limited by guarantee we meet the strict governance and operational standards required by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission.
We are pursuing rigorous financial, operational and technical governance standards to ensure funds invested deliver against sustainability and value for money criteria to meet community expectations.
As a social enterprise and a community based business, our ownership reflects our stakeholders including clients, collaborators, delivery agents and suppliers.
Clients include Australian, Queensland and local governments, Government Owned Corporations, other Not For Profits and private companies.
Suppliers include consultants who assist in project design and modelling, plant nurseries, quarries and materials suppliers (e.g. geofabric) and contractors.
We host the SEQ Fire & Biodiversity Consortium and Reef Check Australia which are community organisations.
While SEQ Catchments organises some projects through contractors and some directly with landholders, much of the project delivery utilises community groups (e.g. Landcare) to build upon their capacity and networks.
SEQ Catchments Ltd operates a number of separate entities. We have these entities to balance our commitment to supporting the community while delivering increasingly complex contractual obligations. This also allows us to manage a range of risks. Ultimately, all of these entities are obliged to only undertake activities that support SEQ Catchments’s mission and objectives.
Our consolidated group includes SEQ Catchments Ltd, SEQC Operations, SEQC Services, SEQC Offsets (trading as Natural Asset Solutions) and Tactiv Pty Ltd (partially owned by SEQ Catchments). Tactiv Pty Ltd is a software development and solutions provider and holds the licence for the enQuire® software suite.
