The report includes 289 recommendations, as diverse as salvaging fridges from landfill, soil pH benchmarking and Commonwealth tax reform.

Rather than respond to each recommendation, the Government’s response to the State of the Environment Report Victoria 2008 outlines government action to address the key areas identified:

  • Energy
  • Water resources
  • Materials
  • Atmosphere
  • Land and biodiversity
  • Inland waters
  • Coasts, estuaries and the sea
  • Living well within our environment

The Government recognises the threats facing Victoria’s environment and has seriously considered the report’s recommendations and key findings.

The Victorian Government supports fully or in ­principle most of the recommendations.
