Environmental risk has to be a significant commercial consideration for businesses of all sizes. Unlimited fines for causing pollution, civil sanctions, reputational damage as well as the subsequent loss of accreditations or commercial contracts, business interruption and clean-up costs can seriously impact a business’s operations and revenue. Effective environmental management is increasingly becoming a major aspect of corporate and social responsibility (CSR).
