What if I’m not a ‘regulated’ business?

Focus is on significant environmental damage

Only ‘regulated trades will be strictly liable, but

these regulations do not introduce environmental liability – it already exists!

Existing environmental legislation:

is wide-reaching and well established;

covers impacts to land, water, air and natural resources already;

is more stringent in many areas than the new regs;

includes both historical and operational pollution impacts;

can hold any type of business liable

can already impose significant clean-up costs
