Organisation and Objectives
Environmental Protection UK was founded 1898 (as the Coal Smoke Abatement Society, becoming NSCA in 1956). We became Environmental Protection UK on 18 October 2007, when we also launched our five-year strategy, Future Focus. We are a founder member of IUAPPA and currently offer some Secretariat support. We are a non-governmental, non-political organisation and bring together expertise from industry, local and central government, technical, academic and institutional bodies. Our membership is largely made up of organisations with a direct involvement in environmental protection: industry, local authorities, professional institutions, environmental consultancies and regulatory agencies.
Environmental Protection UK's vision is of a cleaner quieter, healthier world. We have chosen to focus on three interrelated topics: air quality and climate change, noise, and land quality.
We seek changes in policy and practice to minimise air, noise and land pollution, bringing together stakeholders to inform debates and influence decision-making. We educate and influence policy makers, environmental professionals, industry, and the public by:
Our Five Year Strategic Plan, Future Focus, includes specific objectives and goals for each of our main areas of interest. This is available on our website.
