Environmental Compliance is not just an obligation for companies to self-regulate but a legal requirement to minimize the environmental impact of industrial operations and comply with local environmental law. 

Why is environmental compliance important? 

Environmental compliance means that, regardless of sector, companies emitting harmful compounds into air, land or water must conform to environmental laws, standards, regulations, and other requirements such as site permits in order to legally operate. If a business does not comply with its permit, operations can be halted, and large fines awarded.  

Recently, environmental concerns have led to a significant increase in the number and scope of international directives across all regulatory environments. How to monitor emissions and legal emission limit values differ between regions and industries. To comply with environmental regulations, independent environmental consultants such as Element can help you navigate through the requirements, and conduct on-site testing and consultancy services.

What is environmental compliance?

Put simply, it is fulfilling all the environmental requirements written in legislation and regulations that apply to you. There is a multitude of complex regulatory requirements enforced by either the Environment Agency (EA), Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA), Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), National Resource Wales (NRW), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Local Authorities (LAs).
