The environment, as well as the desire to protect it, has been a tremendous issue this past decade. (space) People’s environmental awareness has been mainly increased since Cyprus became a member State of the European Union (2000-2004). Since joining the European Union, Cyprus had the obligation to adapt its legal system in order to implement the European legislation and also to align its national laws, rules and procedures, thus achieving harmonisation of laws. The introduction of Environmental law has been a landmark in the process of developing environmental awareness. The term “Environmental law” does not simply mean national legislation on the subject but it might also cover the desire of industries and other businesses to contribute to the creation of an ethical code by introducing industrial rules and standards.
Environmental law affects everyone- individual health, business activity, geographical sustainability and their preservation is vital for the future generations and economy.
National and community, environmental legislation covers the following areas:
Valuation of the impact on the environment
Protection of nature and biodiversity
Control of water pollution
