The Committee for the Environment was a Northern Ireland Assembly committee established to advise, assist and scrutinise the work of the Department of the Environment and Minister of the Environment. The committee also played a key role in the consultation, consideration and development of new legislation.[1]

The committee was abolished in 2016 because the Department of Environment was closed and its mandate was transferred to other departments.
