The Environmental Protection Agency is at the front line of environmental protection and policing. They ensure that Ireland's environment is protected and they monitor environmental trends to detect early warning signs of neglect or deterioration. Protecting our environment is a huge responsibility. As such, the EPA works with a number of organisations that carry out specific environmental functions.
The following pages profile Ireland's Environmental Team, providing you with an overview of and the core players involved in protecting, monitoring, policing and planning for a better environment. An A-Z of who to contact if you require advice or assistance is available and contact details for each organisation.
