Often referred to simply as ERM, environmental risk management refers to the “actual or potential threat of adverse effects on living organisms and the environment by effluents, emissions, wastes, resource depletion, etc., arising out of an organization’s activities.” Now more than ever, organisations all over the world are being forced to take a closer look at their actual and potential influence on the environment. In the UK for example, it is now a legal requirement for businesses to operate in accordance with strict standards and regulations, regarding environmental protection. Those that ignore, misunderstand or fail to meet their environmental obligations for any reason face the risk of heavy fines, criminal prosecution and perhaps even the closure of their business.
