Circular Economy & Environmental Enforcement

The current environmental and waste legislation has been drafted to serve the needs of a traditional linear economy. Due to the fast emergence of circular business models, companies find themselves navigating at the interface of different, sometimes conflicting or overlapping regulations.

Oftentimes the local authorities might not be prepared for such a rapid change in the regulatory operating environment. That’s where a seasoned consultant comes in handy; creating consensus between the parties and making sure that safe, transparent and legal procedures are followed.
