Strategic Plan 2013-2017

The Strategic Plan outlines the department's mission, outcome structure, strategic priorities and key areas of focus for 2013-17. The plan provides a framework for the department's business activities to implement the Australian Government's renewed policies to protect the environment and promote a sustainable way of life.

The department has a clear mission - To advance a sustainable Australia: our environment, water, heritage and communities.

Our primary responsibilities are captured in six outcomes, cross-cutting priorities and an overarching corporate outcome.

The Strategic Plan 2013–2017 is a living document and will be reviewed annually to assess the department's progress against the priorities.
