environmental law course

Why this course?

UCT [email protected] is pleased to present a two-day course on environmental law.

Across the globe, companies are facing costly legal challenges and damaging negative publicity arising from the impact of their business practices on the environment. There is an urgent imperative for business leaders to evaluate how their companies approach compliance with the rapidly evolving and complex body if environmental laws and regulations, as well as find new ways to leverage sustainable practices as a legitimate business objective.

Increasingly, the corporate world is beginning to realise positive investment returns from business strategies that coalesce economic development goals, environmental stewardship and social well-being Visionary leaders have begun to steer their organisations away from a linear, reactive approach to environmental responsibility, to one that integrates an incorporation of sustainable processes for optimal competitive advantage.

A comprehensive understanding of the key elements and drivers of environmental law and sustainability is therefore an essential tool for any business leader to ensure that their organisation remains relevant, flexible and prosperous.

This highly interactive course is designed to challenge and reframe your approach to your organisation’s environmental obligations and responsibilities. You will gain an overview of the key statutes of South African and international environmental law, the foundational principles, enforcement and compliance mechanisms, as well as current trends in environmental leadership.
