The Environmental Justice Society is a collective of like-minded, environmentally aware people with professional skills that will help you voice your concerns and pursue justice if your life or the livelihood of your community is being negatively impacted by the actions of a company. Our aim is to inform Australians about their fundamental human right to a safe environment, and to empower them to protect this right if it is being jeopardised.
The Environmental Justice Society has three functions: Education, Advice and Collaboration.
We want to inform you about the different conditions and adverse health impacts which might result from exposures to certain chemicals. We want to equip you with the knowledge to gather the right sort of scientific evidence to establish whether your local area is being harmed by pollution. We want to educate you about the legal avenues available if you have been wronged by a company who has mistreated the environment.
We want to provide you and your community with advice on environmental issues relating to human wellbeing and property. Our extensive knowledge centre will ensure you have the tools to advance environmental complaints through the appropriate channels. The EJS may also assist by referring you on to any one of a host of experts as appropriate, for example a specialist in environmental law if your cause requires specific legal advice or a toxicologist for further investigation of your symptoms of ill health and toxic exposure.
We have formed and will continue to form alliances with experts and environmental organisations with whom we will collaborate to further the EJS’s aims of education and advice. Expanding our referral network will assist in providing you and your community with the information and assistance needed to manage your specific complaint.
