The environment, as well as the importance of protecting it, has been a matter of detrimental importance over these past decades. People’s environmental awareness has mainly increased since Cyprus became a Member State of the European Union (2000-2004). Since joining the European Union, Cyprus has the obligation to adapt its legal system in order to implement European Union legislation and also to align its national laws, rules and procedures with that legislation, 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 may also cover the desire of various industries and 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 future generations and the economy.
Both national and EU environmental legislation covers, amongst others, the following areas:
Valuation of the impact on the environment
Protection of nature and biodiversity
Control of water pollution
N127 (I) 2018 with regard to the consequences on the environment
