Organisation and objectives
Environmental Protection Scotland (EPS) was founded in 2012 and established following the contraction of Environmental Protection UK. It maintained and developed its membership services and has established itself as the national forum in Scotland for practitioners and policy makers in environmental protection and improvement to come together to

  • Share knowledge and best practice,
  • Provide quality training and development for environmental practitioners,
  • Support innovative practice, and
  • Provide impartial, scientific and critical analysis on European, UK and Scottish environmental legislation.

EPS works towards a cleaner, quieter, healthier, sustainable Scotland in the fields of air quality, land quality and noise.
In the first year of operation it has 75% of Scottish Local Authorities as members as well as the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Health Protection Scotland and a number of consultancies and universities.

Activities

  • Respond to relevant consultations

Publications
EPS is in the process of developing a number of publications and public information leaflets.
