Business & Industry
The EPA works with business and industry to help them reduce their impact on the environment and use their resources more efficiently.
Whether you’re starting a business and want to know what your environmental obligations are, this section contains information and links to other sections of the EPA website, and to other government websites and services.
While not every business needs a licence from the EPA, there are still a lot of business and industrial practices we regulate. Even activities as simple as hosing down your work site have the potential to harm the environment.
These pages outline a number of issues for you to think about when going about your business. However, you shouldn’t consider this information as official legal advice. Consult the legislation, the relevant sections of this website or one of our expert advisors for more information.
