Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA)
Our role is to protect and improve the environment; contributing to human health, well-being and sustainable economic growth.
The quality of our environment is a key asset, and our work is directed towards ensuring that people can enjoy a good quality of life in a healthy environment.
From providing flood warnings and environmental monitoring, to responding to pollution incidents, we deliver a wide range of public services. We also advise industry on how best practice can benefit the environment, as well as contribute to a sustainable economy.
Our staff work throughout the country, identifying and tackling the most important environmental issues; locally, nationally and internationally.
As Scotland’s principal environmental regulator, our work makes Scotland a cleaner, greener place to live, creating a sustainable legacy for future generations.
