Environmental Legislation in QLD
I am putting together a program for a half day Environmental Legislative Update Seminar on the 18 June 2013, on behalf of the Australian Sustainable Business Group.
There is a lot to try to cram into a half day seminar.
A lot has changed with the introduction of "light handed" regulation, Green tape reduction and the fragmentation of the former Department of Environment and Resource Management.
The might be a discussion on source control of liquid trade waste.
Vegetation Management will be topical.
I am also looking at including something on the Economic Development Act and the State Planning Policy.
At a Federal Level, Australian Sustainable Business Group will provide an overview of:
* New carbon laws;
* Other related greenhouse: NGER, EEO, RET, Building Energy Efficiency, Off-set Standard
* EPHC: Air, Used Packaging, National Waste Policy, Product Stewardship, Contaminated Sites.
