As you well know if you or your construction site has disturbed soil, there is a wide range of penalties that a court can impose in relation to environmental compliance offence…some in excess of $1 million!
How can you avoid these penalties, and still remain profitable?

Through discussion of the qualitative and quantitative data collected from these real-world case studies, Hildebrand will outline the risk-aversion and profit-focused strategies for compliance that—while common sense—many construction sites and projects do not take full advantage of.
