Andrews Government slow out of the blocks on environment in year one, more urgent action needed

23 November 2015

A report into the environmental performance of the Andrews Government in their first year in office finds modest but slow progress in implementing election promises and developing a leadership agenda on the environment.

The report, entitled 'Envirowatch: One Year In' was prepared by Environment Victoria and tracks the delivery of the Andrew Government's environmental election promises. The report finds that of 26 environmental promises made ahead of the election, 8 have been implemented in full, while 18 are still in progress.
