State of the Environment

The Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability reports on the state of Victoria’s environment at least every five years.

The State of the Environment report collects scientific and other data about the state of Victoria’s natural environment, including trends over time.

The report provides an overview that helps government, business and the community take practical action to benefit the environment. It also sets benchmarks against which progress can be measured.
