  1. Moving Beyond Compliance………. Prasad Modak Executive President, Environmental Management Centre, Mumbai, India

  2. Structure of the Presentation • Basic elements of Environmental Compliance • Environmental Compliance and Business Risks • Can Business risks become Opportunities? • Global Trends on going Beyond Compliance • Creating the Change

  3. Business, Government and Environmental Compliance Business Government Sets policies, standards and procedures Implements Reviews, inspects and monitors Operates Penalizes / provides incentives Reports

  5. Regulators of Environmental Compliance Empowered regulatory agencies e.g. Pollution Control Board enforces environmental legislation. Environmental Cells in Line Ministries, other relevant Government Departments and Local Government Institutions have additional Checks and Directives

  6. Standards and Regulations Evolve • Tightening of effluent standards - Case of a Chemical industry in Navi Mumbai. Phenol standard in effluent 100 mg/l to 1 mg/l • Technology shifts – Chlor alkali industries from mercury cell to membrane technology • Material restrictions – Ozone Depleting Substances, Azo dyes • Limiting resource consumption – Water consumption per ton basis

  7. Environmental Regulations are “invading” Product Life Cycle Packaging WASTE BOD REJECTS ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS Sludges PRODUCTS RESIDUE Formaldehyde PROCESS RESOURCES Chlorine bleaching Water consumption

  8. The New Form of RegulationMultiple Agents, Multiple Pressures, Multiple Incentives/Disincentives Government, International Agreements Labor Consumers Neighborhood Community Business Market Investors

  9. The Equator Principles are today adopted by over seventy financial institutions An updating process took place in 2006 leading to a newly revised set of Equator Principles that were released in July 2006 Now in 2012 a further revision is being made

  10. International funds of worth 8 trillion are now under signatory institutions

  11. Compliance is dynamic ! Compliance can be complex ! Business needs to plan for meeting Compliance

  12. Risks of Environmental Non-Compliance? Principal risks are business interruption or .. even business closure - public backlash, leading to damaging of reputation, loss of the market and withdrawals by the investors!

  13. Impact of Non Compliance

  14. Typical Business Risksand Associated Factors Supply risk Technology risk Market risk Labor induced risk Availability, quality, timeliness of needed raw materials Choice of technology and impact on Quality, Quantity and Price of products Company image, consumer preferences, new competitors Lack of skill, quick turnaround of labor

  15. “Environment” pervades the business risks An Illustration Scenario: Water intensive industry; Quality, Quantity and Reliability of continuous and adequate water a major problem. Risks: A supply risk on water led to high processing costs as more pre-treatment of water was needed to meet the norms Labor induced risk due to inadequate training and poor skills of staff resulted in inefficient water usage practices, low Right First Time requiring reprocessing, more generation of effluents Poor quality water and unreliable supply compromised technology choice and therefore process efficiency and product quality was hampered – eco-labels not met - a technology risk ! Poor product quality, high production costs, lack of reliability in delivery led to fall in market position - a market risk ! Environmental Management Centre

Labor Induced Risk through.. Water saving devices; water efficient technologies, chemical audit to replace objectionable substancees. Technology Risk through... Market risk alleviated by (a) above approach. (b) Decision to move towards a new range of products consuming less water and meeting eco-labels
