The June EU referendum result changes everything for environmental law and business.
Disentangling British and EU environmental laws throws up a huge range of challenges. The vote also poses enormous questions over how UK environmental law should evolve post-Brexit.
ENDS has been following these events very closely and we are delighted to launch the Environment After Brexit conference in partnership with Bournemouth University.
This is the first large-scale multi-stakeholder event in Britain to tackle the whole agenda of environmental law and business after Brexit.
Its mission is to develop an agenda for environment after Brexit that minimises the risks, seizes the opportunities and points towards a new and healthy balance between environmental protection and British business success.
The conference will feature expert analysis on key issues: use of Henry VIII powers in the Great Repeal Bill; what Brexit means for product legislation and industrial regulation; environmental law and devolution; environment and new trade agreements, and more.
It will be a key opportunity for environmental professionals and legal experts in business, consultancy, government, NGOs and academia to learn and also to contribute. Book your place here.
