Global Regulatory Enforcement Trends: More Complex than Dollars and Cents

EHS enforcement is more than just dollars and cents or jail time for the head honchos of big companies. Rather, enforcement is a complex tool that varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and hinges on a number of factors, including politics, economics, culture, and local environmental and working conditions. In this webinar, we explore four trends in enforcement based on Enhesa’s global monitoring:
•    Published agency enforcement plans
•    Alternatives to traditional administrative enforcement
•    Publicity of noncompliance
•    Criminal enforcement
