More than ever, we will proactively prevent pollution and waste to improve Victoria’s environment, health and wellbeing.

Our Annual Plan outlines our tactics in delivering these goals.

Our progress

EPA is continuously improving the way it identifies these focus areas and will be engaging with stakeholders to help inform future priorities. As new issues emerge throughout the year, EPA will prioritise effort to address them.

The five-year reform will see EPA undergo significant transformation and we invite stakeholders to share in the journey and stay updated on our progress. To date, we have fulfilled a number of early commitments, highlighting our promise to enhancing human health and the environment for all Victorians.
