Environmental law is subject to frequent change, with the introduction of new laws or amendments to existing laws a relatively common occurrence. Sitting behind many of the changes are developments in environmental policy, the early debating stages in Parliament of green and white papers and Bills, and the release of formal consultations. This course provides delegates with an understanding of the processes that give rise to changes to environmental law and the tools to identify and track changes in advance of their formal release into law. The course also sets out the main developments and changes that are likely to come into effect, providing businesses with the confidence that they remain compliant and maximise the time available to prepare for any strategic or operational changes to business processes.

The course is particularly useful for environmental and sustainability managers with responsibilities for environmental law compliance management, and also senior management wishing to gain an appreciation of the future environmental law landscape and its influence on strategic business objectives.
