As environmental regulations and societal expectations become increasingly complex, environmental compliance is fundamental in seeking to maintain a social license to operate, as the  risk of brand damage associated with non-compliance and prosecution is often higher than the risk of penalties.

In this context, our clients value our extensive understanding of the way in which regulators are likely to respond from both a policy and enforcement perspective.

Adopting a ‘prevention is better than cure’ approach, our environment and planning team is experienced in advising on environmental management systems and pathways to minimise risk for organisations and their directors, officers and managers.
