Environmental Compliance – Now One of the Biggest Worldwide Business Battles
Whether local or international, getting businesses to become and to remain environmentally compliant is now one of the biggest challenges that face the world today. Environmental legislation is getting more stringent and many large corporates are still unable to achieve the high standards set by the variety of environmental regulations. Environmental compliance is not easily achieved and bodies, such as the ISO (International Standards Organisation), work hard to encourage companies to achieve the environmental standards of ISO 14000, in order to become compliant.
Organisations have to rework many aspects of their processes in order to decrease their environmental impact and to ensure that they do not cause any further damage to the environment. Products that are considered toxic to the environment are being ousted in favour of green products, and processes that result in too many toxic emissions are being changed to become greener. There is now legislation in place that holds company directors personally responsible for environmental damage caused by their companies on their watch, which means that they could be liable to fines or jail terms in their personal capacity. This forces organisations to spend a lot of money on the improvement of their processes and products, in order to reach environmental compliance.
Regardless of the type of business you are in, it is now important that attention is being paid to the impact of the business on the environment, and that measures are put in place to reduce environmental damage. Business owners and directors now have to consider how their business processes affect the world around them, impacts on public health, increase pollution or affect ground and water quality. The disposal of products and waste is particularly important, as landfill space becomes scarcer and leeching of toxins from containers into groundwater and earth is reaching problematic levels.
