Outcomes-based contracting (OBC) has the potential to contribute towards meeting environmental objectives, and has been implemented in a range of environmental policy areas, including agriculture, waste management, and energy. Existing empirical evidence is fragmented, however, and has never been systematically collated and examined. This report offers an overview of the existing empirical literature on environmental OBC, and a summary of key findings from across the evidence, including the challenges and successes of project implementation and some indications of the environmental outcomes achieved.
