EPA and the National Pollutant Inventory (NPI)
Find out how we work with the NPI to track certain pollution in Victoria. Includes help for businesses to report their emissions.
The NPI tracks certain pollution across Australia. It collects data and makes it publicly available on the NPI website.
The NPI has emissions data for 93 toxic substances. An emission is the release or discharge of a substance to the environment. It can be solid, liquid or gas. An emission can enter the environment independently or in other matter.
The NPI shows where emissions come from. Find out more about the NPI.
We manage the NPI in Victoria. This is under:
Business and industry estimate emissions and transfers, then report them to us.
Not everyone has to report. The National Pollutant Inventory Guide (page 7) covers what applies to your business or industry.
