Environmental Legal Compliance Tool

Environmental law applies to each and every business and demonstrating full compliance can be a complex undertaking. Covering diverse issues including waste, water, land, air, energy, carbon, resource efficiency, wildlife and nuisance, it is not uncommon for businesses to have extensive and far reaching environmental regulatory obligations.

The current framework for the enforcement of environmental law is changing, with the regulatory enforcement bodies adopting a risk based approach to inspection alongside likely increases in the level of fines for non-compliant activities. Furthermore, sanctions available to the enforcement bodies have also been revised, with new civil powers available to provide greater sanctions, flexibility and proportionality for certain offences.
