WGEA Working Group on Environmental Auditing


INTOSAI Working Group on Environmental Auditing (WGEA), aims to encourage the use of audit mandates and audit methods in the field of environmental protection and sustainable development by both members of the Working Group and non-member SAIs.

The WGEA and its members share a commitment to use the power of public sector audit to leave a positive legacy for future generations, by improving the quality of the environment, the management of natural resources, and the health and prosperity of peoples around the world.

In order to carry out its mission, the WGEA:

  • Assists SAIs in acquiring a better understanding of the specific issues involved in environmental auditing;
  • Facilitates exchange of information and experience among SAIs; and
  • Publishes guidelines and other informative material for their use.
