Environmental Law
An effective regulatory framework for the regulation of waste, development planning and environmental protection is imperative, particularly with global environmental awareness on the rise. This has become increasingly important when one takes into account the limited land available in such a densely populated island, whereby one needs to strike a balance between the interests of both the developer and the public interest. This would ensure that the environment and historical heritage is safeguarded whilst allowing for land development to take place.
Given the complex system of environmental laws deriving from Maltese, European and International Regulations, it is imperative for all kinds of industries, ranging from multinational corporations to individual traders and consumers to obtain a proper understanding of such laws so as to safely avoid incidents giving rise to liability, civil or criminal claims. The adherence to such laws in turn reflects positively on companies who would be able to boast good governance and risk management through their performance, viability and sustainability.
