Friends of the Earth has expressed concern that the majority of regulations relating to environmental matters originate from EU legislation, much of which may be withdrawn from the statute books in years to come as the UK negotiates a new relationship with the EU and the rest of the world. 

Craig Bennett is right to emphasise that rules and regulations are much more likely to be accepted and acted upon if they are drafted and implemented with input from those most affected by it. Now is an ideal time to start a conversation on the likely changes with our clients, suppliers and colleagues - how will it affect your (and our) business going forward?
