Sustainability Victoria is proud to collaborate with our sponsors, to help deliver the Premier’s Sustainability Awards and inspire Victorians to lead the way in sustainable innovation and practices.
Victorians have a strong history of volunteering for the environment.
Currently, there are more than 2,300 environmental volunteering groups and organisations in Victoria. In 2019, more than 130,000 people volunteered with them. They contribute enormously to our environment, community and economy.
This work has continued, while following current public health restrictions.
It is our role at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to improve Victoria’s liveability, address climate change and protect our environment, infrastructure and heritage for future generations.
The work of Victoria’s many environmental volunteers makes a significant contribution to achieving these aims.
We support them through funding, facilitating, encouraging collaboration and celebrating and promoting their wonderful work.
Whether you’re weeding, planting or collecting litter; contributing as a citizen scientist; or part of a network, a repair café, making boomerang bags or volunteering in some other way – thank you for all you do.
EPA is Victoria’s environmental regulator. We work with community, industry and business to prevent and reduce the harmful effects of pollution and waste on our state’s environment and people.
From 1 July 2021, Victoria’s environment protection laws will be overhauled to better prevent environmental harm. These new laws will require everyone to take reasonable steps to identify and manage their risks to the environment. An important part of the new laws is the general environmental duty (GED). The GED applies to all Victorians and requires anyone conducting an activity that poses risks to public health and the environment to understand and minimise those risks.
Like you, we want Victoria’s environment to be a liveable, healthy place. A place where our air, water and land are free of harmful pollutants, now and always.
EPA is a proud sponsor of the Environmental Protection category of the 2020 Premier’s Sustainability Awards.
