Environmental Law

The industrial growth model that has dominated our development over the last two centuries has had an increasingly negative impact on the planet. Experts concern about environmental consequences gave birth to the concept of “sustainability”.

Sustainability implies the need to reconcile economic, social and environmental interests.

To respond to this situation, certain pro-environmental measures have been taken in recent years to regulate industry by establishing a series of legal requirements that must be followed by companies and governments alike.
