Legal environmental compliance
A growing number of local and global regulations are being enacted which outline compliance regulations for businesses in the areas of sustainability and business and human rights. Ardea International keeps abreast of legal developments in these areas and can support businesses to meet their legal environmental compliance obligations.
New IEMA guide: Managing compliance with environmental and human rights laws in organisations
How can we grow our businesses, innovate and create value without degrading our environment or harming society? Laws and regulations provide a cornerstone for protecting the environment and society from harm. Organisations have a legal and moral duty to comply with these laws and regulation but given the complexity of legal requirements regarding environmental and human rights protection, this is a significant challenge for them.
Following the publication of the first edition in 2005, IEMA is now launching the second edition of its practitioner guide on Managing Compliance with Environmental & Human Rights Law in Organisations. The publication was developed in collaboration with Colleen Theron, Fellow Member of IEMA and Director of Ardea International, with significant editorial input from Marc Jourdan, IEMA Policy & Engagement Lead.

Managing a legal compliance programme effectively can reduce many risks for a company. Failure to do so could effectively lead to increased liabilities, fines, added costs, or criminal indictment.
Working with Colleen is like a breath of fresh air. She applies a common sense approach with a clear level of intellectual ability. The achievement of the client’s objectives were always at the forefront of our discussions. Her preparation of documentation, for example the preparation of a highly technical analysis of an Environmental Impact Assessment was both timely and of a very high quality.
