Reports under the Act
Since 2003, all Victorian Government departments, as well as the Environment Protection Agency and Sustainability Victoria, have been required to implement Environmental Management Systems to reduce the environmental impact of their office-based activities. Environmental performance data is reported by these departments and agencies in annual reports, as required by the Department of Treasury and Finance’s Financial Reporting Direction 24C.Environmental Management Systems are reviewed annually by the Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability to provide a strategic and public evaluation of the way the Victorian Government’s departments and agencies are addressing the urgent needs of climate change and other environmental concerns. In addition, these departments and agencies are required to have their Environmental Management Systems independently audited biennially.
