The EPA works in partnership with landholders, the Forestry Corporation of NSW, community groups and the timber industry on
- regulatory reforms to strengthen environment protection and make it easier for logging companies to obey the law
- guidelines to help the timber industry operating on both private and public land conduct ecologically sustainable native forestry
- innovative mapping programs and research to increase knowledge of where threatened species such as koalas and threatened ecological communities occur
The EPA also conducts a comprehensive compliance audit program to ensure the native forestry industry is obeying the law.
