Environmental Practice: Liability for Environmental Damage

The implementation of the Environmental Liability Directive (ELD) in European Union (EU) Member States requires companies operating in the EU to take the action necessary to avoid causing significant damage to the environment and to rectify any significant damage that is caused. The remedial measures that are required under the ELD are generally broader than have been required under any previous environmental legislation.
