Sustainability Objectives for the Tasmanian EPA

The EPA administers the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA) and also seeks to further the objectives of sustainability and sustainable development, in line with the objectives of Tasmania's Resource Management and Planning System (RMPS), through means such as:

  • considering the implications of development proposals, and applying conditions to prevent environmental harm, within the broader context of their implications for sustainable development
  • supporting and promoting activities which are recognised as essential for the sustainability of our society into the future, such as energy efficiency, waste minimisation and management, resource efficiency, education and innovation
  • providing incentives that further these objectives.
