A Tim Nicholls-led LNP Government will use Environment Benefit Bonds to tackle key environmental and conservation issues.

LNP Shadow Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection Christian Rowan said the LNP was committed to improving and protecting the environment.

"We have a strong track record of helping to preserve the environment through our environmental grants, koala habitat program and litter prevention and this commitment will further help to grow Queensland as a clean, green and sustainable state," Dr Rowan said.

"As part of our Greener Queensland plan we are committing to trial three Environmental Benefit Bonds.

"An LNP Government will identify an environmental issue that could benefit from long-term, outcomes-based funding.

"We will then work with the private and non-government sector towards finding a solution to the problem and delivering a clean and green Queensland."

Dr Rowan said the environmental bonds were about practical actions to improve liveability.

"The environmental benefit bonds will be focused on delivering real outcomes to address environmental issues through partnership with the private sector and non-government organisations," Dr Rowan said.

"By working in conjunction with the private sector and non-government organisations we will deliver real and workable solutions to future-proof our environment for all of Queensland.

"It is all a part of our plan to Build a Better Queensland by creating a clean, green and sustainable Queensland."
