Environment Victoria Featured

Environment Victoria is the state's peak non-government environmental group. We formed in 1969 as the Conservation Council of Victoria, as a result of a successful campaign to save the Little Desert from subdivision. In 1994 we changed our name to Environment Victoria to reflect the broader range of issues we dealt with.

EV represents about 1000 supporters, including over 130 environmental groups. We campaign in the areas of Zero Waste, Healthy Rivers , Sustainable Living and Climate Change, working together to protect Victoria 's environment.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely upon the financial support of our donors and members to continue our work. For more information about Environment Victoria, please contact us on (03) 93418100 or admin@envict.org.au.

What do we do?

We campaign in the areas of:

Zero Waste:

1) Pressuring State and Federal Governments to develop industry standards to minimise the production of packaging and ensure manufacturers take responsibility for the waste they produce.
2) Community awareness projects, such as the DUMP awards and Juice Bar Report, that raise the profile of waste issues, encourage consumers to choose products with less packaging and put pressure on industry to take responsibility for the waste they produce.
3) Educating the community about electronic waste take-back schemes.

Healthy Rivers:

1) Advocating for adequate environmental flows for Victoria 's rivers.
2) The Your River project: Encouraging stewardship by telling the stories of a river through its people.
3) Raising the profile of river issues in the media.
4) Developing policies for more sustainable management of our rivers.

Global Warming:

1) Lobbying the Government to reject an expansion of the brown coal-fired Hazelwood power station and support cleaner energy alternatives.
2) Raising community awareness and understanding of the causes and impacts of climate change and how it can be mitigated.

Sustainable Living
1) Nha Dep: Working with Melbourne 's Vietnamese community, engaging them in sustainability in the home.
2) Smogbusters Way to School: Working with Melbourne schools, encouraging staff and students to leave the car at home and walk, ride or catch public transport to school.

4) Lobbying the Government to improve public transport services in Victoria.
