Open letter: Calling on the Victorian government to protect the community from toxic pollution

May 10, 2022

Everyone has the right to breathe safe and clean air – yet many Victorian communities are exposed to toxic air pollution every single day.

Coal-burning power stations are one of the biggest sources of toxic pollution in the state but Victoria’s regulation of air pollution is failing the community and falls well below international standards. 

That’s why, we’ve signed an open letter alongside health and community groups across the state, calling for the Victorian government to take responsibility to protect our community. 

The Victorian government will soon release its response to the Inquiry into the Health Impacts of Air Pollution in Victoria, and we call on the government to accept all 35 recommendations made by the Committee.
