It is a legal requirement that businesses comply with environmental legislation. Failure to do so can result in large fines, or even imprisonment.
There are a huge number of pieces of environmental legislation affecting UK businesses. The first port of call for companies looking for information is the Environment Agency’s website at: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/environment-agency/
