This Act sets up an Environmental Trust with the objects of:
- Promoting restoration and rehabilitation projects in the public and private sectors which will, or are likely to, reduce pollution, the waste-stream or environmental degradation;
- Promoting research into environmental problems in both the public and private sectors;
- Promoting environmental education projects in the public and private sectors, and public
awareness of environmental issues; and
