About our group | Mō te roopu
The Engagement group drives and promotes the strategic direction and delivery of bold and innovative engagement via a system-wide approach. It is responsible for facilitating effective and positive outcomes via its Engagement, customer, communications and government relations and official correspondence teams (the latter more commonly referred to as the OIA hub).
It does this by identifying and promoting clear pathways that:
- position the EPA as a proactive regulator
- grow public confidence in our work
- increase and improve our level of engagement with the broad range of stakeholders within the environmental landscape.
The group works closely with the EPA’s science and Kaupapa Kura Taiao (Māori advisory) experts, creating a ‘virtual’ engagement group, championing a consistent, cohesive and inclusive approach to EPA’s conversations and dealings with stakeholders, government agencies, customers and the New Zealand public generally.
