EcoLexLife - Preverite okoljsko tveganje vaše dejavnosti – osrednja tema: NARAVA
Workshop presents an overall picture of the operator’s environmental risks with emphasis on NATURE. With the help of risk assessment tool, which reviews various influences that the operator has on the environmental segments (water, soil, air, nature), there is also a practical approach towards raising awareness on environmental liability. Workshop is free of charge. Participants learn about required environmental legislation and get practical advice on how to reduce risk of environmental damage.
The participants were informed about the ELD directive and "polluter pays" principle: companies that cause damage to nature (or other environmental segments) must undertake remedial action and cover the costs of these measures. If they fail to do so voluntarily, they can be forced by the Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia. Since the cost of remediation can be extremely high, we emphasized that prevention is even more important, and special insurance is also recommended to cover such risks. The lecturer also introduced the risk assessment tool, which helps companies evaluate their risks of causing environmental damage and presented the legislation they need to follow.
