The Statement of Environmental Values

Each of the ministries subject to the Environmental Bill of Rights has a Statement of Environmental Values (SEV). The SEV is the framework used by the ministry when it makes decisions that may affect the environment.

Each ministry has its own SEV, reflecting the environmental issues and considerations specific to its own mandate.

The Environmental Registry gathers all SEVs together in a special section to make it easy for you to find them. Reading them will help you understand how each ministry plans to incorporate environmental principles into decision-making.
