Enforcing the law

At home and at work we all value the environment. It is where we live, where we work and it provides us with valuable goods and services. It is important that we protect and enhance this valuable resource not only for ourselves but for also future generations.

Many aspects of the environment are protected by laws passed by Parliament. Many individuals and businesses comply with these laws. Non-compliance with the law can undermine law-abiding businesses, put at risk or actually harm the environment, and spoil our quality of life. Those who do not comply may be subject to enforcement by a range of regulators.
