This World Environment Day we need to be reminded that people’s action on plastic pollution matters. The steps that governments and businesses are taking to tackle plastic pollution are the consequence of this united action. It is up to all of us to accelerate this action and transition to a circular economy.

The mission of EIANZ is to connect and support environmental practitioners to promote a sustainable future. The work of our members is diverse, but all share the same passion and commitment towards promoting environmental knowledge and awareness and advancing ethical and competent environmental practice.
