Legal Developments: Taking penalties
Damage to the environment appears to be an inevitable but regrettable by-product of major industry in today's consumer-driven climate. What is important is that this damage is managed and in most cases prevented. Michael Woods reports
Environmental damage can be seen as an unfortu-nate but inevitable outcome of our consumer-driven society. Without manufacturing industries processing raw materials, we would have no cutlery or cars, but such processes also pollute air, water and land with emissions and effluent. Damage can also arise when systems fail and human error occurs.
