Environmental Agency

The Environmental Agency (formerly a government ministry as the Environmental Office) was founded on 28 February 2009 by Act 62, with the purpose of protecting, exploring and conserving our natural surroundings and resources. Its powers were expanded and fully defined by the Environmental Protection Act 2012. The Environmental Office was downgraded from a government ministry to a division of the Home Office on 15 November 2016, but retained its powers and functions.

The Environmental Agency can issue orders in regards to sustainability, the prevention and reduction of pollution, biodiversity and conservation, and the regulation of waste disposal.

The Environmental Agency runs the Imperial Geographical Society (IGS), which explores and researches the natural world to further understand it and share its wonders with Austenasia and the rest of the world. As of the present date, the IGS has launched fourteen expeditions:
