Environmental Regulation

In a time of undisputed enormous climate change and resource scarcity risks, there is a growing concern among investors, regulators and other stakeholders (including consumers) with the adverse environmental impact of organizations.  As ever more pressure is brought to bear on organizations, those that do not anticipate and manage their environmental risks will eventually lose any competitive advantage they may once have had over players that are quick to step up to plate and tackle growing environmental challenges.

The European Green Deal shed a new light on the role of environmental regulation in improving the sustainability of organizations. Failing to abide by the regulations is not an option anymore and will eventually hinder if not prevent access to the market.

Understanding environmental regulations in certain sectors, which often differ depending on the sector, is critical to the success of organizations that want to thrive.
