Aug 18, 2020 Q1-Q2 2020 Environmental Law Developments in Frontier Markets

Whitepaper Overview

Environmental legislation reform has been significantly expedited over the last few years, with governments legislating over areas such as:

  • The circular economy
  • Waste management
  • Packaging
  • Single-use plastics
  • Climate change

This makes environmental issues increasingly more pressing for manufacturers and producers. Growing consumer demand for sustainable and ethical production at all levels of the supply chain means there is also an increasing need for more environmentally sustainable manufacturing.

This paper examines environmental legislation in the emerging markets of:

  • Brazil
  • Russia
  • China
  • Argentina
  • The frontier markets of Vietnam and Jordan.
