  • improve the efficiency of administration of the environment protection legislation
  • reduce risks to human health and prevent the degradation of the environment by the use of mechanisms that promote:
    • pollution prevention and cleaner production
    • the reduction to harmless levels of the discharge of substances likely to cause harm to the environment
    • the reduction in the use of materials and the re-use or recycling of materials
    • the making of progressive environmental improvements, including the reduction of pollution at source
