Business & Industry
The EPA works with business and industry to help them reduce their impact on the environment and use their resources more efficiently.
Whether you’re starting a business and want to know what your environmental obligations are, this section contains information and links to important sections of the EPA website, and to other government websites and services.

In addition, everyone has a responsibility to care for the environment under section 25 of the Environment Protection Act 1993 which states:
a person must not understake an activity that pollutes, or might pollute, the environment unless the person takes all reasonable and practical measures to prevent or minimise any resultant environmental harm.
