OEH is committed to:

The OEH portfolio has approximately 3450 (full-time equivalent) employees, with the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) accounting for approximately 2880 of these, located in offices across NSW. OEH supports the Premier, the Minister for the Environment and the Minister for Heritage in performing their executive and statutory functions.

OEH develops and leads policy and reform in environmental regulation, sustainability, biodiversity and native vegetation, coastal protection and Aboriginal cultural heritage. OEH also manages 6.8 million hectares of national parks and reserves, which is almost 9 per cent of NSW. The Heritage Branch within OEH works with communities to identify important places and objects and provides guidance in looking after heritage items.

As well as supporting six internal functional areas, OEH provides services and other support and, in some cases, staff to the Environment Protection Authority and to our cluster partners.
