Victoria’s New Environment Protection Laws

From 1 July 2021, the newly amended Environment Protection Act will come into effect changing the way Victorian businesses manage their impact.

This new Act directs the focus towards prevention of the risk on public health and the environment rather than focusing on the consequences of increased pollution.
