The new Victorian Environment Protection Act has come into effect (1 July 2021), and outlines new requirements to meet your environmental obligations. A core component of the new Act is a General Environmental Duty (GED) to businesses, which allocates responsibility of proactive management of potential environmental hazards.
Updates to environmental legislation, contamination profiles and emerging contaminants mean the landscape of managing your environmental risks is constantly evolving. Edge Group routinely conducts risk assessments and compliance reviews to identify and proactively manage a broad range of environmental risks of our clients' sites and/or activities. This ensures compliance with the Victorian environmental legislation and environmental risk responsibilities. If you don’t understand your risks, then you may be exposed.
