We all have the right to live in a clean and healthy environment that doesn’t make us sick.
Right now, our laws don’t achieve this standard, with toxic waste dumps, water pollution from mining and industry, and poor air quality from coal and other particulate pollution sources all impacting on communities across Australia.
History shows that the law is the only thing that protects communities from harmful pollution.
Strong laws, and effective monitoring and enforcement, are critical to protect our community from the health impacts of pollution. We are using our expertise to make sure appropriate laws are in place, and helping communities exercise their rights to monitor and enforce those laws.
