Environmental Legislation

All businesses are affected by environmental legislation and need to be aware of it.  It is designed to reduce the harm your business may cause to the environment. The areas covered by legislation include:
Environment Agency


Larger businesses may be obliged to report certain environmental key performance indicators or on environmental performance in more general terms in their annual Directors’ Report. Smaller businesses may decide it is to their benefit to do so
Not complying with environmental legislation can have severe consequences. Illegal waste disposal or causing river pollution can result in environmental damage and disrupt the supply of drinking water. Clean-up and compensation costs can reach tens of millions of pounds. You could be fined or even face a prison sentence. In some circumstances, your business could be closed down to stop you acting illegally
For further information in regards to Environmental Legislation please contact your local Environment Agency Office
