The government is set to hack away a great deal of red tape with a new classification of industries that uses colour codes to denote environmental impact, a move that means 36 industries may need no green clearance at all.

The national pollution watchdog’s proposal also increases the minimum duration of environmental consent while trimming the list of most-polluting businesses in an attempt to boost flagging economic growth.
