Read about what the earned autonomy pilot program is and how it works.
Following an assessment process, EPA selected 23 licensed sites to include in the earned autonomy pilot program (EAPP). The following businesses are members of the pilot program and operate these sites:
EPA and industry worked together using a co-design approach to explore the concept of earned autonomy for EPA licence holders.
The four networking sessions provided a platform for discussion amongst participants about aspects of the program, as well as opportunity to share and learn from each other through examples of good environmental citizenship.
The networking sessions and webinar were held over the course of the program (2015–16), as summarised below.
The EAPP desired outcomes for the program were developed with the EAPP participants in Workshop 1:
It soon became apparent that these outcomes could not be fully realised during a one-year pilot, and these would be the desired outcomes of any future model for earned autonomy.
The EAPP participants developed a design brief for a future program. Some key elements of this are as follows:
The lessons from this pilot program will inform future strategic planning for earned autonomy approaches at EPA.
