The penalties imposed for environmental offences can be significant and company directors can be exposed to personal liability.
The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection administer and monitor environmental offences under the Environmental Protection Act 1994 and have the power to impose significant fines on companies and their directors for environment offences. If you are issued with a fine or face prosecution for an environmental offence it is important to obtain legal advice early.
