EPA’s new website is under construction. It contains links to our previous site while we add information.

EPA is committed to continually improving our environmental performance.

We do this through an environmental management system. This identifies, monitors and controls our environmental impact and the performance of: 

  • our offices
  • laboratory
  • field-based operations.

Activities that we monitor include:

  • our buildings, including energy and use, materials and waste management
  • transport
  • purchasing.

We have already improved our environmental performance and made significant milestones. We have been carbon neutral since 2005 and developed a framework to manage our own greenhouse gas emissions.
