CME thanks EPA chair for service to the industry 

The Chamber of Minerals and Energy of WA (CME) has today thanked outgoing chair of the WA Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), Professor Matthew Tonts for his stewardship of the regulatory agency. 

CME Chief Executive, Rebecca Tomkinson, said Professor Tonts’ tenure at the EPA had overseen a substantial reform agenda that aimed to merge high standards of regulatory governance with the agility to meet internationally competitive timeframes. 

“Professor Tonts has been instrumental in supporting the review of the EPA and working with CME to ensure the required efficiencies will continue to support WA’s responsible and sustainable development,” Ms Tomkinson said. 

“He has been a collaborative and enthusiastic professional to deal with and on behalf of the CME and its members, I congratulate Professor Tonts on his next appointment and wish him every success.” 

Ms Tomkinson said CME looked forward to working with the EPA Board under the incoming chair.
