As the public and scientific outcry over environmental pollution has intensified over the years, politicians have responded by creating more legislation designed to protect the environment. This legislation has been aimed largely at business and industry.
This course on Environmental Legislation and Policy presents an overview of the most relevant environmental legislation that you need to be informed about before writing or evaluating your organisation's environmental policy. It provides you with an overview of the development of statutory environmental law in the UK, and concludes with examining the rationale behind environmental policy development, what a policy should contain and how it should be communicated.
