Performance agreements

The NT EPA may enter into an agreement (a performance agreement) with a person who is:

  • conducting an activity that causes, or is likely to cause, pollution resulting in environmental harm or that generates or is likely to generate waste or
  • the owner or occupier of land that is polluted.

A performance agreement requires a person to undertake a program:

  • to protect, restore or enhance the environment or
  • to improve waste management or
  • to prevent, reduce, control, rectify or clean up of pollution or environmental harm resulting from pollution.

A performance agreement:

  • may specify that the NT Government is to provide assistance in relation to the performance of the program and
  • is a contract binding on the NT Government and the person with whom the agreement is entered into.

Performance agreements are available on the public register.
