Environment Bill guidance document
The government has confirmed that the Environment Bill will be carried over to the next Parliament session. It covers two distinct areas, the overall governance framework for environmental matters and specific issues such as waste, resources, air, water….
What was meant to be a timely replacement for EU derived environment legislation has been pushed back several times, because of parliamentary time being taken up dealing with the pressing matters of the COVID-19 situation and Brexit related legislation. The Bill should become statute in autumn 2021, hopefully prior to the next UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). Until enactment, we must turn our attention to the draft Bill to give us a sign of what we should expect and plan for. There is indeed plenty to plan for.
The current decade highlights the exposure of companies and their likelihood to be strongly affected by uncertainty. New constraints emerge from the growing awareness of various stakeholders regarding environmental challenges. The Environment Bill addresses some of these issues and stressed EHS professionals to take into consideration a new set of rules.

In this guidance document, we break down the most critical aspects to help EHS professionals navigate throughout the new normal. You will explore most areas of the upcoming legislation ranging from waste to clean air and biodiversity.
