Sustainability and the EPA

The EPA seeks to further the objectives of sustainability and sustainable development, in line with the objectives of Tasmania's Resource Management and Planning System (RMPS). The mechanisms by which the EPA seeks to further these objectives include considering the implications of development proposals and applying conditions to prevent environmental harm, promoting resource and energy efficiency, educating for sustainability and through offering incentives, such as awards for sustainable practice.
