What it contains

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges to Victoria’s environment, economy and society. Recognising the importance of this challenge, EPA Victoria has made tackling climate change a corporate objective. This makes sure that we consider the issue of climate change, and our response to it, in our planning and decisions. Changes in some environmental systems are likely to be unavoidable as a result of climate change. In some cases we will have to rethink what can be protected. Reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and pollution, protecting at-risk ecosystems and species, and appropriately managing the use of environmental resources are examples of what we can do to make our environment more resilient.
