Environmental Audit

The ongoing increase in both the pace and scope of environmental legislation and regulation continues to impact upon businesses irrespective of their type, size or location. Responsibility for the correct handling and storage of liquids lies with the owner organisation (including protection from wilful acts of vandalism). The pollution of both land and water is regulated against by law and whether accidental or deliberate, can result in prosecution leading to fines and related costs. Negative publicity could also damage both the image and reputation of the business. The Environment Agencies policy is to vigorously pursue prosecution of both
company and individuals responsible for any infringements of these regulations.
