Environmental Compliance

Share on:

Environmental compliance, which can also include key aspects of health and safety, can be defined as conformity with the rules, regulations and procedures typically imposed by Regulators, or other key external stakeholders (e.g. customers), and internal corporate management systems.

Non-compliance or non-conformity with environmental regulation may have serious business impacts directly through environmental clean-up costs, payment of fines and other unplanned costs, and indirectly via reputational damage. It is therefore an important business priority for an organisation to manage its activities effectively in order to comply with environmental requirements.
