How we do it
When fully established, we will
- review and report on government’s progress in meeting environmental goals and targets
- monitor and report on the implementation of environmental law
- advise government on proposed changes to the law and other environmental matters
- investigate suspected failures to comply with environmental law by government and other public bodies and enforce compliance where needed
The public can make a complaint to us where they suspect that the government or a public authority has failed to comply with environmental law.
