The Victorian Government has committed to release a Victorian Air Quality Strategy. It will:

  • Articulate clear, sustainable and cost effective policies and programs to ensure clean air for all Victorians
  • Empower Victorians to reduce air pollution and their exposure to it
  • Tackle emerging air quality challenges

Clean Air for All Victorians – Victoria’s Air Quality Statement kicked off engagement with Victorians about our priorities for future air quality management. It included ideas on what could be done to protect air quality over the coming decades.
