As a modern regulator EPA does not protect Victoria’s environment on its own. The community, businesses and other organisations all have a duty to protect the environment. We are committed to enabling greater participation in environmental protection and fostering long term change in business practice.
The engagement policy ensures that EPA has a standard way of encouraging, supporting and empowering the community, businesses and other organisations to create lasting pro-environmental behaviour change.
By improving accessibility to information, we aim to increase participation, responsibility, environmental equity, restorative action and environmental leadership. We want to encourage people to become environmental citizens, empowering Victorians to protect the environment because they want to, not because they have to.
