Since the 1970’s there has been an increasing level of environmental legislation, driven mainly by EU initiatives. A number of key principles underpin Environmental Law, including:
What is Legislation Support?
- Polluter Pays Principle
- Precautionary Principle
- Preventive Principle
- Producer Responsibility
- Sustainable Development
There is a vast body of environmental legislation which evolves almost daily and it can be difficult to know what the latest situation is and what legislation is relevant to your business.
In today’s environment it is increasingly important to keep abreast of the legislation relevant to you. Non-compliance to environmental legislation can leave a business and in some cases its directors open to prosecution and fines.
