Corporate Environmental Responsibility

The Ministry of Environment and Forests has notified various acts and rules for environmental governance. The Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) Notification, 2006 elaborates the procedure for seeking environmental clearance and preparation of Environmental Impact Assessment Reports and Environment Management Plans. However there is a need to integrate the environmental concerns including those related to forestry, wildlife and bio-diversity, wherever applicable, into the main stream of the corporate policies. It would therefore, be appropriate that the Corporate Houses, major Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) and companies have in place Corporate Environmental Policies for protection of Environment.
