The environment portfolio (Sustainability Victoria, the Department of Sustainability and Environment and EPA Victoria as well as the Metropolitan and Regional Waste Management Groups) provides the Victorian Government with policy advice, environmental regulation, programs to implement policies and reporting on the state of Victoria's environment.
Sustainability Victoria delivers programs to achieve the Victorian Government's policy objectives. We support and complement the work of our portfolio partners by providing advice to inform policy, and delivering programs that encourage organisations to go beyond the minimum environmental compliance requirements.
We also support and complement other departments and agencies beyond the environment portfolio including the Department of Primary Industries in its role leading Victorian energy policy, Department of Business and Innovation in its role to promote economic development and the development of Victoria's clean tech sector.
