EPBC commitments

We aim to comply with all legislative requirements when delivering construction and maintenance contracts, including the requirements of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC Act).

The Act provides a legal framework to protect and manage nationally and internationally important flora, fauna, ecological communities and heritage sites that are also known as matters of national environmental significance (MNES).

Where conditions apply for the protection or mitigation of impacts to MNES they may include annual reporting of compliance and/or the publishing of relevant documents such as Conservation Management Plans.

This page contains links to VicRoads projects that are required to report annually on their compliance with conditions set by the Commonwealth for protection of MNES.
