Environmental compliance is becoming exponentially important in recent years. It is now an established part of corporate social responsibility, as local, national and international stakeholders demand environmental stewardship from the individuals and organisations they do business with. Further, regulation on environmental matters is increasing, making environmental compliance mandatory and raising the level of adherence to such provisions more and more. This significantly affects entrepreneurs, companies and organisations, who must integrate environmental management into their business strategy and policies. This requires a preventative approach to environmental compliance and liability issues, as well as an understanding of the evolving regulatory landscape.
We maintain a niche environmental law practice that specializes on Cyprus environmental laws and regulations and is able to assist companies and individuals to meet Cyprus environmental compliance standards. We have a strong presence in all areas of environmental law, including environmental litigation, defence of environmental prosecutions, environmental cleaning from past use, compliance issues, environmental approvals and assessments, due diligence for mergers and acquisitions, waste management and disposal, recycling, waste diversion and recovery and transportation of dangerous goods.
Our practice is driven by a commercial and comprehensive understanding of the implications of environmental law for our clients and their businesses. Our clients includes companies in the natural resources sector, energy sector, shipping sector, water boards, utilities and various levels of government.
