Environmental Compliance is a comprehensive term encompassing a variety of sustainability goals and requiring meeting different legislations to different aspects of the environment. In the US alone, there is the Environment Protection Agency, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Stormwater Clean Water Act to name but a few. Compliance with these acts is not only mandatory but noncompliance can lead to a big drain on resources while also destroying the environment around the site of the accident. In addition to fines, you may also have to serve a jail term. The fine itself can be $2,500 a day a violation, not to mention the losses due to disruption in the operations, attorney fees and loss of business due to reputation damage. If that is not compelling enough a reason to consider environmental compliance, implementing best practices aligning with environmental regulations can not only make your business sustainable but also improve your operational excellence and profitability.
