What it contains

The biggest change in 50 years to Victoria’s environment protection becomes law on 1 July 2021. 

The new laws require Victorians to understand and minimise their risks of harm to human health and the environment, from pollution and waste.

For businesses already managing their environmental risks, this likely means little to no change. Complying with the new laws is about taking reasonable, proactive steps and employing good environmental work practices.
