Example text

Once a connection is made between a problem and a specific activity, a decision may be made to restrict that activity. The issue then becomes one of determining how and at what level to impose restrictions. In the case of pollution control, it is necessary at this stage to establish a target level below which the health and ecosystem effects are considered acceptable. This might take the form of an air quality standard for a geographic region, or a water quality standard for a body of water. This type of target specifies a desirable level of environmental quality but it does not provide detailed targets for individual sources of pollution.

The EPA sets detailed requirements for industry and ensures these requirements are met by inspecting facilities and punishing offenders with civil, or even criminal, penalties. Regulation issued under this command and control approach is prescriptive. It either specifies pollution control equipment (known as Best Available Technology) that must be used by facilities in a given industry or it defines maximum permissible emissions levels for particular pollutants. To comply with this type of regulation, many companies focus on the installation and operation of “end-ofpipe” pollution control equipment.

Approach to industrial environmental management, they are now the core of the Dutch approach. In the 1980’s, the Netherlands recognized several problems with its approach to environmental regulation: environmental quality was not improving and in many cases was deteriorating, a large number of ministries had responsibility for environmental protection which created a confusing and inconsistent set of policies, and industry was faced with a complex permitting process that was inefficient to implement and difficult to enforce.
