SEPA has a clear vision for our future role: “the only successful societies in the 21st Century will be ones that are very low in environmental impact. This will require major innovation. SEPA knows we need to support people and businesses across Scotland to do this. So, we need the best people working for us to help Scotland be a hotbed of innovation that will drive 21st Century success.


Traditional environmental regulation has achieved a lot.  We now need to build on these achievements understanding that the most successful societies in the 21st century will be those that can bring environmental, economic and social objectives together.   Our Statutory Purpose encapsulates this challenge - it requires us to protect and improve the environment in ways that also create health and well-being benefits and sustainable economic growth.


To deliver this purpose, we need a new approach to regulating; an approach that helps to put Scotland on a path that creates prosperity within planetary limits. This approach is set out in One Planet Prosperity - Our Regulatory Strategy.
