Enforcing environmental law
Environmental law functions within the legal system for the interests of the environment. Like any law it can be an extremely powerful regulatory tool, as it sets rules and standards to which parties must abide to, and applies disincentive penalties such as sanctions if the law is broken. Environmental law is regarded as an essential element for achieving sustainability.
