Environmental Regulation

Environmental regulations can confuse even the best of us.  During 2011 there were more than 300 instances of formal action being taken against businesses in Yorkshire and Humber who had broken environmental laws.  Many of these came down to ignorance,  accidental spillage or poor house keeping. This strand has been designed by the Environment Agency to explain key regulations in plain English and give you practical hands on help with paperwork and pollution prevention planning.

It will give clear guidance on how you can comply with the law and avoid costly prosecutions and bills for environmental clean up.  Make sure you’re not guilty of either offense with our support.

These small group sessions are all being led by an experienced and impartial expert. They will be interactive and practical, and give you a chance to ask your questions and have them answered.

NEW: we now have a one-page overview of eco-fair seminars so you can plan your day with a glance.
