Summary The environmental performance of corporations in Australia and overseas in under increasing scrutiny. Government regulators, non-government organisational watch-dogs such as Greenpeace and the Environmental Defenders Office, as well as public opinion, can all make life difficult for corporations which are suspected or found to be in breach of their legal obligations to protect the environment. Consistent with this trend, there have been significant changes in government and judicial attitudes towards corporate environmental wrongdoing and accountability, with a clear move towards making corporations subject to criminal liability. Written by acknowledged environmental law specialists, Gerry Bates and Zada Lipman, this book deals with the legal obligation of corporations to avoid or minimise pollution. It is designed to provide a detailed explanation of the laws relating to pollution control across all jurisdictions in Australia
