It is tabled in Parliament as a legislative requirement every 5 years and aims to help shape policy and action, influence behaviours, and assess our actions as stewards of the Australian environment. The 2021 SoE report was released by Minister Tanya Plibersek with her ‘State of the Environment Address’ to the National Press Club on 19 July 2022.
